So sad to lose one of my friends. Wes and I have enjoyed joking and dancing with Allen and Betty. He has always been one of the biggest jokesters in the world. I will miss his funny personality. I will always see his antics when dancing to Chicken Truck and Monkeying Around wearing his little red hat. Our heartfelt condolences to Betty and the whole family. He has been so tough for such a long time. Go with God Allen.
