    I want to express my sincere sympathies to the family. Alan worked at APT for many years and I could always depend that Alan would be there. He got Grace involved too and they both became part of the APT family. The caring they showed and their responsibility for the positions they held should be an inspiration to us all. You should all be proud of the wonderful role model your Dad was for us all.

    I was so sorry to read about your Dad’s passing. I know you were very close to him. Although we haven’t talked in quite a few years I remember those loving stories you would tell me about “Alan and Gracie”. I pray that those beautiful memories give you comfort now.

    My sincerest condolences to you and your family.
