    We were parents with Allen and Shirley, carpooled Alisha and Beth a lot of places, traded sleepovers with the girls; have many fond memories of those two precious ones. Alisha, treasure those memories of Dad. Beth can definitely relate with you, still misses hers tremendously after 16 years last month as do her children although they are both grown and parents themselves. We are all in Stillwater, Oklahoma except Chris with his family over by Tulsa only 1 1/2 hours away. May God bless you and yours, cry those tears.

    Alisha, we are so sorry to hear about Allen! We were all high school sweethearts and had so many good times together during that time. Later all married and still stayed close. I loved your mom dearly and remembered how proud they were of you! OUR PRAYERS are with you now.
