Allen and I have been fortunate to have had the chance to be together with my cousin Louis , his children and grandchildren. It took a few years ... from New York to Port St Lucie... but we met again. And he was so proud of his daughters and grandchildren, and with good reason!
May his memory live on, as a father, grandfather , brother, son, and...as my cousin. Till we meet again,
You will be missed
