I recently was made aware that Larry Allen, twin brother of Harry Allen, '69 passed away in 1998.  Both Larry and Harry are the brothers of Brenda Allen, KHS '67.  I can't think of anyone I enjoyed more in my years at Syms and KHS.  Both of these boys were just so funny and full of fun.  In my mind's eye they will always remain those young, happy, funny young men, very sweet and my good friends.  How sad to think they left us way too soon.  May God and the Holy Spirit be with them now and always.  May they walk with the Lord Jesus and many angels.  Will look for them on the other side.  Love to both of you boys!
