      I spoke with Allen just a bit ago, and found out his wife, Carol, passed away peacefully on April 14th. A 'celebration' of her life was held today. Even though Carol didn't have melanoma, I feel this needed to be posted on the main board. Allen hung around here for many, many years sharing his knowledge, wisdom, encouragement, hope and grief with so many. His family is there with him, and he said he's doing okay; just glad that Carol is now pain free in Heaven.

His family is there with him, and he said he's doing okay; just glad that Carol is now pain free in Heaven. Carol and Allen would have celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this year; and she spent many of those years by Allen's side, fighting this beast. She encouraged him to do what he felt he needed to do, and go where he felt he needed to go, to fight his melanoma. Allen hasn't posted much here since the bulletin board changed, and his computer crashed, so he lost all his contacts. If you'd like to contact him, his email address is redneck_77 @ att.net (no spaces).

      I've met Allen–he even stayed overnight once in my barbie room! =) I wanted to meet Carol sooo much, especially when I was in Ft. Lauderdale last summer, but things just didn't work out. I chatted with her on the phone several times over the last few years. My heart is breaking right now. Please keep Allen and the family in your hearts, thoughts and prayers.

      I love you, Allen, and I'm so sorry. There are no words, only tears……

      *Hugz* from my heart to yours,

      ~Lisa~
