  1. Dear Mary Beth and Family.
    I am a friend of your mother’s and I never met your father, but I just had to send a note to tell you how sorry I am that you are having to bear this double loss. I was shocked to read of Allen’s death so quickly after your mother’s. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I will pray for comfort and strength and for guidance during this difficult time. Look to the Lord in this time of trouble. He has never failed me, He will not fail you.
    Always, Shirley (Vogan) Tucker

  2. Mary Beth,I am truly sorry for your loss. I am sorry I was not aware that your mother had passed also. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I am greatful for your friendship all the years that we have know each other and please do not think that I have forgotten you, you are one of my dearest friends. I miss our conversations and I hope to help you in any way that I can. Once again I am sorry for your loss.

  3. Although I didn’t know Allen well, I wish to extend my coldolences to his family. Our daughters were good friends in school. As a fellow Marine (Korea) I wish to extend my respect to him. Sepmer Fi.

  4. I was so sorry to hear of Allen’s passing. I recently saw him at Casper’s Doughnuts having his coffee and chatting with his buddies. I had the pleasure of knowing him because of his daughter, who was one of my sisters dearest friends in high school. I also had the pleasure of being his barber for a short while. Mary Beth and my sister Jennifer were the subject that he and I spoke of along with the subject of my father (also a marine) when I cut his hair. He never failed to ask about my Dad whenever I saw him. He loved his daughter with all his heart and that was evident everytime he spoke of her! He was a wonderful man and he will be GREATLY missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. My sincere condolances to his daughter and her family.

  5. I hope the best for Allen’s daughter, Mary Beth, after her father’s death, shortly after her mother and my sister, Nancy, died on June 23, 2004.

    I ask friends and relatives of Nancy and Allen in Pueblo to help Mary Beth in the coming days in handling estate matters.

    As my own daughter, Hazel, will be born within days, I cannot leave my home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to help Mary Beth on these complex matters.

    My niece, Mary Beth, needs help in finding a reliable accountant as well as lawyer in Pueblo to help her wrap up estate matters.

    Thank you for sharing my concern.
