Such a dear sweet lady. She would always tell us that she prayed for us and every night she would call out our names in prayer. She was a very caring person and loved to share the bounty from her garden. She was at church Two weeks ago and was so happy. Just a sweet beautiful lady. Her Mom and my Dad were first cousins and we were always talking about growing up in the Allen family. Loved her so much.
