Allen Leonard Death, Obituary – Daniel Ismay has written a stunning piece of fiction here. During his time in high school, Allen counted this person as a close buddy. Alex, Hey, man, I’m sorry to hear the news that you received about Allen. I can’t even begin to fathom how you and your loved ones must be feeling right now. I am sorry to say that due to my military obligations, I will not be able to attend the celebration of his life; however, you are welcome to spread this information.
You and Allen were the first friends I made when I moved to the United States. I was born in Panama and spent part of my childhood in South Korea before relocating to Navarre while I was in the middle of my junior year of high school. It was difficult to walk away from everything that I had ever known or cared about, including my friends, my family, my sports, and my school. It seemed as like everything that I had ever known or cared about had been ripped from me.
Before that one day, I went to a soccer practice hoping that it wasn’t too late to be on the team, and while I was there, I met you and your brother. You both made me feel like I was back in my own house, even though you weren’t obligated to do that for me. I will never forget how thankful I am for both of your friendships. Grateful for all of the rides to school and practice, grateful for all of the opportunities to go surfing, and just generally grateful for all of the fun times we shared.
I hope and pray that Allen is in a happier position now than he was before. I am aware that over the years, we have all kind of lost touch with one another, and from little I have seen of Allen on Facebook, it appears that he has been facing some of his own personal issues. Regardless of the challenges that he had, I want you to know that the Allen that I knew was one of the most charitable and fiercely loyal persons that I have ever met; traits like that are extremely difficult to come by in today’s society.
I want you to know that I, along with Lori and the kids, will be praying for peace and comfort for you and your family.
