    To the family of Alan,
    Where do I begin. Alan was one of the best neighbors and friends anyone could ever for. I miss seeing him setting out on the porch and even if he wasn’t outside, I knew that he was there looking out for our neighborhood. He was one of the best people I have ever met and he will truly be missed. I feel I could never make up for the times he has helped us over here. Please let me know if you guys need anything! I will always be here for you! Please take care!
    Your neighbor and friend,
