  • My father was a great man and great father I miss him a lot haven’t seen him in a while but I still love my father I’m the oldest

  • Allie was the sweetest man. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, Gail. May he rest in sweet peace. ❤️

  • My heart aches for the loss of our Uncle Allie!! He is the youngest of our aunts and uncles. He was four years older than my sister Fadia. Apparently, he ran up and down Winter Street shouting, “I’m an uncle!!” Obviously, he had no idea what that meant.
    Fadia and I would come every Spring and Summer break to stay with our grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. “Family.” Extremely special to us!! Uncle Allie was the baby and our mother, Fatima, was the oldest!! Uncle Allie was a bit mischievous!! He shaved his German Shepard’s hair off, and another time, he took out the speakers to our baby dolls that said “mamma.” He was very cool! Looked a lot like Sal Mineo, “a popular teenage idol.” I had pictures of him and all my girlfriends thought that’s who he was, talk about nuts!! I certainly didn’t say otherwise.
    Uncle Allie was not only our uncle, but he was also a friend and brother! Uncle Allie and my husband Dave, God bless their souls were both 82nd Airborne in the Army!! They were a band of brothers.
    May you rest in peace with all our beautiful family. Together forever! Allah’s blessings and prayers, love and prayers, Gail, and our cousins. Extremely sorry for your loss.
    Love always,
    Number two niece who will always treasure our Hassan family memories

  • My Jedduh was a great grandfather that I truly admired in my life. I will miss him dearly. He could make you laugh so hard that you’d have tears in your eyes. A man true to his word and very much a leader. He was all about showing respect and love for one another. We referred to him as ‘Mighty Mouse’ and he will forever be remembered as that. May you rest peacefully amongst the angels. Thank you for all the support and guidance throughout my life. I will cherish all of our memories forever.

  • Jedduh “The man, the myth, the legend “ You are a very peaceful soul and have always been the strength in our family. Your wisdom, guidance and devotion to our family has been endless and so forgiving over the years. You will forever be in our hearts and we will keep your legacy going on forever by always showing acts of kindness and spreading peace and compassion to others.. I know how much family means to you and it makes me feel at peace knowing that you are reunited with your son Norman , your daughter Karen, your mother Najia and siblings. I promise to take care of your grandchildren and share with them our memories with pride.. You will forever be our Jedduh. Love, Carolyn

  • Gail, I missed not seeing Allie next to you today. I was ready to pour him a Diet Pepsi.
