In fifty years Uncle Harold never missed a chance to tease me about my orange juice hair rollers - the funniest thing he'd ever seen. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the whole Allen Family. Love, Carol Villescaz

Remembering the many games of Euchre and Tonk played with Uncle Harold and the family. He was always willing to help us younger kids play, but kept that competitve spirit with a twinkle in his eyes. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
