Aunt Aggie,

I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Allen. He was in the greatest shape from what I remember, always making sure he was making time for hockey; and he had the best operatic tenor voice I have ever heard I remember, I had a classically trained tenor with my last duty assignment, I would talk for hours with this guy about just how proud I was of Uncle Allen and how blessed I was to hear him sing. I miss all of you. Love Billy

I was so lucky to have Al as my neighbor and friend. He was a good man with a kind heart. I will miss our walks around town, going out to lunch and all the stories he would share about his life. I hope he has been reunited with his wife Agnes, because he missed her so much. Rest In Peace, Al. We will miss you!

My very sincere sympathy to Alan's family. I knew him from the Choir in the First Congregational Christian Church in Irvington. His wonderful tenor voice was such a blessing to us. He was also on the Church bowling league and loved by all in the church. The last time I saw him was at an All Classes Irvington High School reunion several years ago. May many special memories be with you.

Dear Overbaughs,
I am so sorry for your loss. I sang with Alan at the Congregational Church in Irvington for almost 20 years. He had a lovely voice and a wonderful sense of humor. He was very kind and was very cooperative. I am praying that you will be blessed with wonderful memories.
