    I was so sorry to hear of Allen’s passing.
    My mother Neva West and my deceased step-dad Donald enjoyed going to Homestead, FL and visiting with Allen and Liddy.
    I got to visit them a few times myself and their home was always warm and welcoming. Allen seldom saw a stranger and he was a kind and honest man. They often spoke of their children and grandkids and obviously loved their family and friends very much.
    I can see Allen now riding his bike around the neighborhood and saying hello to every person he encountered. He stayed active — amazingly so — going off to pick strawberries or play golf, and I know he and Liddy enjoyed life to the fullest. He will be missed.
