Lindsey, Whitney & the rest of the family,
We were saddened to hear that Alan passed away. Our thoughts are with you, his girlfriend and your families. Our family is keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Scot, Stefanie and I have so many fond memories of Alan. Mine started in junior high when he was a regular at our home (my brother Randy's dear friend). I then had the pleasure of working for Alan at Burger King on 82nd Avenue.

The most cherished memories we have are the ones that our families spent together when Lindsey, Stef and Whitley where in grade school and junior high. Time spent at each others homes, beach weekend get a-ways, and of course sporting events..

I hope you feel surrounded by much love. We are so sorry for your loss.

Scot, Nancy & Stefanie Wilson

Lindsey& Whitney,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I know how close you were to him, not just as his daughters, but also as best friends. I am so sorry for your loss.

While nothing that I can say will make you feel any better right now just know that you are loved and supported by many. If you need anything do not hesitate to ask even if it’s just a shoulder to cry on or a moment to reminisce.

I asked myself today at work what my fondest memory is with your family and it brought a smile to my face. Both of our families spent a weekend at the beach! Linsey, you and I danced on the kitchen table for HOURS to The Offspring song Pretty Fly for a White Guy while our parents watched(most likely with lots of worry& maybe some self doubt on where they went wrong with us). Whitney, you accidentally got a huge rock thrown on your ankle at the beach by me and I will never forget how scared and sorry I was for that. I can still hear your blood curteling scream today. At the end of that eventful day both of our dads gathered black garbage bags and flash lights to go “snipe” hunting! Our mothers watched and laughed as our dads helped us try to catch the flesh eating squirrel like creatures. Although we were unsuccessful with the hunt that is one of my fondest memories not only with your family but of my childhood. Others include, hot tubbing under the gazebo in your back yard, playing on your waterbed, Linsey attempting to teach me how to dribble a basketball and lots of laughs and yummy food in your kitchen with all 7 of us!

My deepest condolences to the both of you. Please do not hesitate to contact me for anything.

Love always, Stef

My deepest condolences to Alan's family. Words can never express the pain that comes when losing those so dear to our hearts especially when its unexpected. How comforting to know that death is only temporary and that very soon we will see the promise in Revelation 21:4 fulfilled where it says that God "will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." It will be a wonderful time when we are reunited with our loved ones by means of an earthly resurrection. (John 5:28,29). Until then, keep close to your hearts all of your cherished memories. May the "God of All Comfort" be with you in the difficult days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)
