  • Dear Lorraine,

    I’m so sorry to hear about Alan. I remember you two visiting Bloomington a few years back. I always enjoyed Alan’s company as a child and as an adult. He was a kind and sensitive person, as well as a fellow animal lover.

    I also know what caring parents you and Mark are and wish you both did not have to go through this.

    I’ll be thinking about your whole family.


  • Cindy, Mark and Lorraine,
    So sorry about your loss! Allan was a gentle, loving person that has left many wonderful memories with so many people! Love and prayers to you all!
