I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Alan from grade school. I was seven years older than him, so I believe I was in eighth grade when he was in kindergarten. I can still see him as that little five year old running around the playground. I thought he was as cute as he could be! Praying for peace and comfort for your family.
