I have known Alan from the many years he would take Bellydancing lessons through St. Andrews Rec Centre where I work. I always enjoyed our conversations and also his custom colourful costumes he would wear. We will miss seeing his cheerful face every week and send along our deepest condolences.

Les and family, Dave and I want to extend our sympathy to you. We had been planning to see you at Alan's visitation this afternoon but when Dave was lifting my mother's wheel chair out of the car this morning he moved the wrong way and put his back out. He needs help getting in and out of bed so I didn't feel I could leave him. We want you to know we are thinking of you.
Sincerely, Dave and Carolyn

I always enjoyed my conversations with Alan at the barn. It was interesting to hear about his latest cruise, or all about the next ship that he would be traveling on. Alan's devotion and love of Lancer horse Grasis came from deep within his heart and gave him much happiness. Deepest sympathies to Alan's family from our family.

Les and family--so very sorry to hear about Alan's passing.I rode with Alan for many years at Lancers. I can honestly say that no one enjoyed riding and the horses more than Alan did. It brought him enormous joy. I knew Alan for many years before becoming aware of his great artistic gifts--a true talent. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. Mary M.

With deepest sympathy:
