  • R.I.P. Uncle Allen.

    I remember how exciting it was to see our Uncle Allen when we were little. We thought he was wonderful. I remember playing cards with him, and him trying to teach me how to shuffle. It usually ended in a game of 52 pick up.

    We will miss you. Say hi to Dad for us.

    Love, Donelle
