I was very sorry to hear of Allen’s passing. Although I just knew him from making two prosthetic eyes for him, I felt like we would be lifelong friends. I hope Allen’s family is doing okay. I’m praying for you!

I would just like to send my condolences to all of Allen’s friends and family members. Allen was a wonderful person and a great friend. We met as biology lab partners in the 10th grade and Allen soon became one of my closest high school buddies. Allen was one of those genuinely kind and unselfish people. Despite all of Life’s unexpected twists and turns, Allen made it a point to keep in touch…a true life-long friend.

Allen, you will be missed and remembered by many.

We love you brother!
