Alan was a terrific soul. He never had a bad word to say about anyone. His cup was always half full, never half empty. Blessed with the "gift of gab" I will always remember Alan's "Devil's Advocate" position no matter what the topic.

Alan and brother Jay were first cousins but honestly felt more like brothers. We will miss him dearly.

I am just so saddened to see this. I met Allan when he first opened his practice in the Hill Section. I believe I was one of his first patients. He had a way of making everyone relaxed, & seldom have I met a friendlier person. He & Chrissie were equally fantastic with my children. G-D the Friedberg family. Hugs to all.
