What can I say that everyone doesn't already know. I think anyone and everyone that knew Allen knows what kind of special person he was. I am so glad that I have been able to spend the last 9 and a half years getting to know this man. I know I am only his daughter-in-law, but Allen always treated me just like I was born into the family and that I belonged there. He loved to tease with me about how loud I would talk. He was a friend to everyone. I know heaven has gained another sweet angel to watch over us all. I will never forget you and what an amazing man you were. Fly high Allen Ryan fly high!!!
