Memories Timeline


  1. The best Uncle a girl ever had. Uncle Allen was always there for me growing up. You could always count on him, no matter what. I will miss him terribly, but I know where he is. I’m sure Aunt Audrey, Terri and Mama were waiting on him at the gate. Until I see you again, I Love you Uncle Allen. Sharon Brown Simpson

  2. Mr. Allen was a great neighbor. He made sure he kept an eye out on who was coming in and out of our block. Mr. Allen looked out for my girls getting on and off the bus when they were school age. He will surely be missed. He also made some pretty good biscuits. My family and I will miss him dearly.

  4. I love you Uncle Allan. It was always great to see you at family functions and also around Carthage when I was growing up. I always respected and thought very highly of you and appreciated that you always treated me with kindness and respect. I look forward to the day that I get to see you and everyone else in the family again who has went home to be with the Lord.
