My deepest condolences to you , Jodi, your mom, Allen's beautiful children, his fiancé Karen and the Sarmento family.
When in Fall River, I often ran into Allen at Marzilli's or Sam's bakery ( He of course buying lunch for the world). Any time I ran into him, there would always be two or three people that would come up to Allen , give him a hug, or a hearty handshake . Laughs and happy conversation soon followed, along with his bright bold smile that could outshine the sun. I know he'll always be smiling at his family from above.

Our deepest condolences to your entire family. Allen's passing is a great loss to all who knew him. I am truly grateful to have known him for the time I did and can honestly say I never knew him not to have a smile on his face no matter how difficult the day.
His attitude was contagious as he would always leave me smiling and in a better mood.
I'm truly thankful for his friendship.
