    I went to school with Allen and haven’t seen him since high school, but my prayers are with the family. May God grant you peace and comfort through this devastating time.

    May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you. God reassures us in his word the bible “the last enemy death is to be brought to nothing” 1Corinthians 15:26. May you and your family also be comforted in knowing that God truly cares about you and your family. Psalm 34:15, 2Corinthians 1:3,4 Revelation 21:3,4
