Condolence from Glennyce Sinclair on August 10th, 2019 9:29 am

Kathy and Terry and Family,
It was with great sadness to hear of the passing of Alan.
I remember him fondly. Our fall visits at the Lake were always great fun. Our hunt in the fall was not always, if ever, successful but the friendship was always well worth the trip. Our sons, Sean and Kirk, remember their visits to the Cabin and the fun they had.
Alan and I talked on the phone very few months and he always expressed in his way how proud he was of his family.
He will be missed.
