    Alan was a 6th grade student of mine when he attended MGMS. He was a brilliant young student who made a lasting impression on me.

    I worked with Allen for 7 or 8 seasons in Alaska. He was a great friend and he will be dearly missed. We shared many laughs around the campfire but not nearly enough. So long old friend!
