Mr. Allen helped build mama and daddy’s kitchen cabinets. He was a master carpenter. Daddy said Allen could look at a board and go outside, cut it, come back in and it’d be perfect. They thought a lot of him. Jeremy and family, you are in our thoughts & prayers.

So sorry for the lose of allen
I remember when I first met him him hoss and I was entertain so much by Allen
He showed me everything in his building from all his wood work to just sitting outside have a few laughs
Wouldn't allow me to leave until he had showed me more stuff inside
He will be missed so much by many
R. I. H. Allen and keep shining
