Dear Dorothy and family,

My deepest sympathy for your loss of Allan. He was a lovely gentleman. My children, who were his students at Lockerby school always spoke very highly of Allan. Thinking of you at this time.

Dorothy & family My deepest condolences. Al was a kind and very community active person who helped so many people. His smile and nature welcomed so many not only to his church but his home. It was my privilege to know the both of you.

To Dorothy and Family - I’m so sorry to hear of Allan’s passing. It’s been years since we’ve seen one another, but distance and time does not erase the fact that I remember Allan, and you Dorothy, as the gentle and kind people that you are. Allan will truly be missed, but always thought of with love and a smile. I cherish the picture from your wedding that you gave to me at my wedding. I’m still so proud to have been your flower girl! Sending love and hugs to you, and your family now and always.
