I am very sad to hear of my cousin Allen's passing. Allen seemed to me to have had a great life, full of love, positive energy and humor. I recall hearing him and Janet quietly giggling together like school kids off to side at family events, and the love he had for his daughter and grandson was always obvious. Allen is now with all the others that have gone before us and I'm sure my late brother Tuck will take good care of him until we all get there.

Peace to Allen and love to you all,

Don Kushto
