So very sorry to hear of the passing of Allene.  She was truly a beautiful person, always smiling and showing grace and poise all during our years of school together.  What a wonderful personality and such a gifted person to be around.  May you rest in eternal peace, dear sweet lady.  Allene, you will be missed by so many, many people.

Allene always seemed to have a special light around her. She was friendly, funny, a wonderful hostess, and it goes without saying that she was beautiful, with her own sense of style. From time to time I'd think about her and wonder how her life turned out. Reading her obituary, I'm glad to hear that it was as beautiful as she was. Goodbye Allene, and thanks for the double dates and the great summer pool parties.

So sorry about Allene.  We were good friends in school.  I remember her cute little Thunderbird.  We were jealous of it.  At least I was!!  We had fun together!!
