  1. Candle 2Alan was my bestie since we met on Leap year 20+ years ago. He only wished the best for us. I hope I was always as true blue as he was. My love goes out to Joann,Daphne and family, Gail and family, Jill and also Jean. Thank you for sharing Alan with me.. my life is richer for it.

  2. Candle 5There will forever be an empty space where Alan was with all his humor and kindness. May you rest in peace 🕊️

  3. Candle 4I feel like I knew Alan my whole life. What a sense of humor and a great smile. My warmest wishes to his mom and sister — it’s been a long time since I have seen either one but have very fond memories. He will be missed by our class.

  4. Candle 1The journey ahead always looks so long.
    The roads we travel are never planned.
    The actual walk is actually quite brief.
    We never know how many souls we touch along the way.
    I was blessed to have walked with Alan.
