Remembering Grandpa Allen...

Here's a pic of all the Allen boys.  =)
It was taken at Christmas, when we visited grandpa in the nursing home.

Today is his visitation, with the funeral taking place tomorrow.  It's pretty cool that me and my cousins will be taking part in the service.

Very thankful for a legacy of faith!

Here is the obituary for my grandpa...

Your grandfather left a legacy of Christian men to spread God's Word.
I know of no greater testimony than that. Your own father is the truest Christian that I know. He has also left a legacy of men to preach and teach the Holy word of God. Amen.
