Add My Condolences

Although I only recall meeting Allen once at his fathers property, and he showed me his model train layout; I've known of him through the years since our names were so close. Allen and family are all in my prayers! P.S. My father was Ralph, son of Rubin.

Our deepest condolences to the whole Melcher family, we have been neighbors to Al for over 20 years, and will miss him greatly. I enjoyed our chats and waives as we mowed our lawns. He was a kind man with a good sense of humor and we considered him a friend. Rest easy Al, and God bless.
