Loved our visits with “Pa”. We were blessed that Alan allowed us to call him Pa and treated us like family. Had great discussions about life and family while cutting wood or just sitting by the fire. He was very good to us. Our prayers for Linda and the whole family. We will miss you Pa - Love, Daniel & Stacey
