Dad, You left us so quickly we didn't get to say good bye, but at least you didn't suffer. But I want to thank-you so much for taking us in your arms and raising us as your daughters. You were the DAD that you didn't have to be. I enjoyed learning hunter safety and going hunting with you. Whenever I needed anything done at the house you were always willing to help me. I know you missed Mom and now you are with her. I will miss you very much. Love your daughter Kathy

I hope you & Wally find each other up in heaven & catch up on your deer hunting stories. I'll never forget all the hours you 2 spent in the garage, in your lawn chairs, swapping hunting stories. And the many hours we spent at the campground enjoying the fire & friends. R.I.P. Alan, you will always hold a special place in my heart.
