Allen was such an awesome man! When I helped take care of him, another resident played guitar around the facility and Allen would become full of light. I always enjoyed being his CNA.
I hope he rests easy.

Sorry to hear of Allen's passing, he was a great guy. I always enjoyed it when he came in to the parts store. Rip Allen!
