I would like to express my sincere sympathy to you all. Reading about the wonderful life that Allan lived warmed my heart, especially his volunteering and self sacrificing spirit. What a great loss. Please take comfort in the Bible's hope of the Resurrection (Acts 24:15) You will see Allan again in health and strength on a beautiful earthly paradise that our God and Father promises for the near future. Soon death will be gone forever (Rev 21:4)
