Allen is the father of my heart. He accepted and loved me from the moment I married Larry. Some of my sweetest memories of him are the ones of him with my children and then grandchild on his lap. I know my Derek was there waiting for his grandpa. Sincere condolences to Cathy and the rest of the family and to his many friends.
