I just saw Alans obituary. I am sorry for his families loss. I remember Alan from BSA summer camp the summers I worked there. He was in troop 65 at the JCC. Even thou its been 48 years I remember him as a nice kid.

Dear family of my friend Alan,

I am so saddened to hear of Alan’s passing. If Lynn has not posted on CHS, I would not have known. I would have come to pay my respects in person. Please accept my most sincere sympathies. He was a kind, soft-spoken, gentle man. I was proud to call him my friend. Baruch Dayan Ha’Emeth. May he R.I.P.

Dear Lou and Lynn,
My memories of Alan from our Audubon School days were as a talented artist and his quiet kindness. He passed way too young.
