Dear Family and Friends of Alan Young – As a colleague of Becky Cully I was deeply saddened to hear of Alan’s untimely and unexpected passing. I know that Becky was in Florida at the time she received the sad news and that she had to quickly arrange travel to home. My thoughts and prayers are with Becky and all of Alan’s loved ones during this time of loss and memorial. May the bonds of those he loved provide them all with strength and support and care. My sympathies and regards, Mary Daymont
