It’s been a long time since I’ve seen my cousin! I was sure grateful for the memory today of the time he took me SNIPE hunting. The Krozos family sends our love and hope you all find healing and peace.

Gina, my heart goes out to you and the kids and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Allen left this world far too early after a courageous fight. He was a good man. He loved his family deeply and spoke so fondly of all of you in our many talks and discussions. He was so proud of all of you. He was good to his fellow workers and treated all of us with respect and dignity. He was eager to lend a helping hand with any project and always seemed to thoroughly enjoy his work environment and especially the team he was an intregal part of. His smile and his dismeaner was infectious. He was intelligent and knew how to tackle and solve problems or issues. Allen was one we would all love to be more like and we need more of him in this crazy world today. He will be missed no doubt. May God watch over you and the kids
