Peggy, Conway, Collin and Casey,
Tony and I are so sad to learn of Mr. Allison's death. From the obituary, sounds like he had a long happy life---something for which to be thankful . Wish we could have been there today, but Tony just got out of the hospital after 6 days.
Wishing you God's peace and sending our love,

My father was perhaps the sweetest person I have ever known. It isn't enough to say that he didn't have a mean bone in his body. He did not even have a mean cell.

To John, Peggy, Lloyd:

Lloyd Burton was a special person who always had a kind word for others and was able to make those in his presence feel truly valued.
You were fortunate to have him -- and his friends were fortunate to know him.
He will be sorely missed.
