  4. Jeanne, I am so saddened to hear of Allen’s passing. Such a fine, funny, and friendly guy. He always had time to chat any time I ran into him at the clinic, Spencers, or some guy store around town . I realize the disease robs families of so much of their loved ones. For my last memories of Allen, I think of the couple of times I stopped by the house to visit and we shared an endless amount of stories with each other. I will miss him. Prayers of good memories to you and your family. Mark Billings

  6. Hugs and prayers to you Jeanne and you family, so sorry for your loss.

  7. Allen was one of my favorite people to work with because he always kept me laughing. He had some of the funniest, most descriptive old Texas expressions! He worked hard in the nursery, and had a talent for trimming up all the roses so they always looked their best! My dog Cooper adored Allen, and couldn’t get enough of his beard. 🙂 Missy the cat, who like many cats was very particular, would also go running to Allen. He had a way with all of the critters! Allen was kind to his core, and will be greatly missed!
