  • Dear Kathleen and family,
    I just wanted to extend my condolences once again to you and your family.
    I remember when I first met Allan. I found him to be such a nice, likeable person, always ready to share a laugh. I felt fortunate to have him join our team.
    Your family’s proximity to Sacred Heart School made me feel a closer bond to Allan as I attended my high school years at Sacred Heart.
    I always enjoyed talking with Allan. His positive attitude and kindness towards others was exemplary and his service skills second to none. As I mentioned to you on the phone, there were numberous times that customers would call and praise Allan for his ability to fix their problems. I would tell Allan what the customer said, and he would tell me what he did and simply say, “I’m glad it’s fixed,” give a smile and laugh, and be on his way. I never heard Allan complain or make a negative comment about anything.
    We will all miss Allan.
    Also I just want to say that I’ve enjoyed meeting and talking with your daughter and son at our company outings.
    As I am away, I regret that I cannot attend the wake and funeral for Allan, but my son Gavin and daughter Lindsey will be there in my absence.
    I wish you and your family the best, and please do not hesitate to call if we can do anything for you.
    Brian Williams

  • To the family & friends of Allan:

    My thoughts and prayers go to the family & friends of Allan. I grew up with Allan as a kid in the Germantown section of Quincy, MA. I always found Allan to be a friendly, outgoing kid. I could tell that Allan was going to be a success in life.
