I remember visiting in your home in Lyndhurst long ago as I was exploring the possibility of being your Christian Ed Director. You and Allen were so gracious. I recall Lynne and the boys, too, and the good times we had. May God bless and comfort you.

Dear Carolyn and Family: I am so sorry to hear about Allan’s death. As you know, your family was very instrumental to me becoming a pastor; for that I will always be thankful. I remember fondly coming to visit in your home many times in Selah as a little boy. You lived just behind me. Allan always had a sweet loving spirit about him. May God comfort you and give you the strength your need for the days ahead. Pastor Jeffrey Jones, Biwabik MN

Dear Carolyn,
Was so sorry to hear about Al’s death. He and I served on the Board of the Ministry together and I so enjoyed getting to know him better. He was a faithful and humble servant of Christ and a loyal Covenanter. May God bring you and your family comfort in your hope and memories of Al.

I don’t know you personally but I served on the nominating committee with Allan and I felt immediate kindred spirit with him.  Being with him was a highlight for me.  God bless you and give you His peace and comfort.
