    Naomi,

    Our hearts and prayers our with you. Alan was such a good person, good friend. It seems unbelievable that this day of sadness should come so early in his life and your lives together. Treasure your memories and write them down so that your grandchildren can share some of the richness of his life, and yours together, as examples of the good in people and society.

    Love,

    Carole and Dave

    Dear Naomi and family,

    I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Alan at Millstone. He taught me a lot at work and in life. I only got a chance speak with once after he retired from Millstone, just to tell me he had started a job teaching. His students were very lucky to get the chance to learn from him.

    I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you all.

    Sincerely,

    Michele

    To the Klotz Family

    My condolences to your family on the passing of Alan. Alan and I worked together for many years in Nuclear Engineering and Operations at NU. We had a terrific relationship and I, as well as his peers, truly appreciated his wonderful mind and accomplishments in physics. Both Alan and I enjoyed talking about so many issues of the day and always enjoyed a good laugh. I am so saddened by his passing and will always miss my dear, close friend Alan.

    With prayers for you and your family,

    Naomi,
    We just found out this morning. We are devastated. We share your pain at his passing. We knew Alan as a customer, but came to know him (and you) more as a friend. He will be missed. He left us better than we were before we knew him, and we are grateful. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.
