Holly, the kids, and I were very sad to hear about the passing of Grandpa Allen. He has a very large place in my memories from my childhood. He was a tough love kind of guy but I knew that he loved all of us grand kids, me being the eldest of the many. He wanted us all to stay on the right path. We will miss Grandpa, and we love you Grandma (Doris) Allen. We know that Grandpa is in a better place now and had one heck of a reunion. We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers as we grieve with you. All our love. Brian & Holly Allen and family Baldwin City KS
