Mr. Walden Honestly Changed my life, He really inspired me. I was one of his students as I also went to Mac on a daily basis. He was just the kindest person ever. Always a smile on his face and never fails to make anyone happy.

There are so many wonderful memories of Alan, I cant even begin to share them all. Alan was always so full of life&laughter that he always made me smile&laugh no matter what the situation was. GOD gave him so many special gifts/talents, but the one that I loved was to hear him sing&WOW what a voice! Alan was very special to me even tho Ive not seen him in years. He was my sons (Christopher)godfather&Alan took that role very seriously. They used to have a blast together, even going to Disneyland one time. Alan will always be in my heart&never forgotten.
