Sympathies to your family on the passing of Allan. We had the pleasure of meeting and working with Allan only in recent times. His friendship was an ongoing development through square dancing, making maple syrup, home dining and being introduced to his wide circle of friends. We will miss him.

I am so shocked and saddened for you Katie Katherine and Allison and all of his family. He truly had a special smile each time I saw him at the local coffee shop. He often visited with his fellow farming friends and he always had a greeting for me whenever I would see him. Such a loss for the community and condolences to everyone. Bev Mcgee
