Allen was a deeply compassionate and loving soul.
We need more like him; he was an Angel.

Allen and I were reasonably close friends in high school (Hillhouse, 1960). We continued to stay in touch, but only sporadically over the years. Allen returned to mostly all of our reunions and really enjoyed them; enthusiastically and sometimes rambunctiously. The early friendships became more important as we aged. I last saw Allen about 7 years ago when we met for breakfast at an upper West Side restaurant. We spent lots of time on memory lane, but also lots of time talking about where we were at that point in our lives. I never met Harold, but he clearly was the center of Allen's life. Coincidentally, Allen and my cousin Ellen worked together and were friends. I remember Allen as a warm, embracing, gentle, sensitive, and caring person. A number of our Hillhouse classmates share a weekly Zoom call. We all have similarly fond memories of Allen and have talked about his loss a lot over the past several weeks. I know I speak for my classmates when I say this. May his memory be a blessing.

When I first moved to New York City in 1985, Allen became one of my first friends. Across four decades I learned how deeply Allen loved his friends and how wise Allen was. And how he could make me laugh!
My condolences to Harold and to all of Allen's friends.

Allen was in every way the truest friend one could hope for. Allen was always there, always Allen.
