    I love you Bill...Peggy and you are two of the kindest people I've ever met. I've kept you recipe for linguini and clam sauce for Christmas Eve dinners. What a bright spot you have brought to my life. Scott

    Siento muchísimo la pérdida de Bill. El mes que estuve en su casa me hizo sentir como uno más de la familia, incluso en alguna ocasión se comportó como si fuera su propio hijo. Siempre recordaré su simpatía, su buen humor, y lo que le gustaba hablarme en Español. Siempre recordaré el partido de los Yanquis, el dia que pasamos juntos cuando fuimos a comprar unas zapatillas Nike, y la gracia que le hacía mis problemas con los vegetales. Siempre le recordaré sonriendo. Un beso fuerte a Peggy, Christine y Katy.

    To the Allen Family goes our heartfelt sympathy and love... Bill was a kind and intelligent man with a generous spirit. After Todd and Kathy got married in Wilmington and all the festivities were over and they had left for their honeymoon, we decided to extend our Wilmington stay into a mini vacation. Bill invited us over to their home one night and out to dinner another night. We were instant family, in his eyes, because my brother married his daughter. We'll always remember that and we'll always think fondly of Bill.
