Sissy and I were friends in high school. She was always fun to be around. When I have run into her in town it has always been a joy to see her. My heart is broken for all the family. She was truely a wonderful, kind and loving person.

I am very greatful to have such a loving grandmother and aunts and uncles who cared so much for their sister and sister in law.. I want to personally thank each one of them and also my cousin Michelle and her husband Pete, for making my mothers service beautiful. I also wanted to share a story about my mother. Last year on Mother's Day I came home, I had just purchased a car and what was supposed to be a joyed time with my mother. And telling her about my life in Vegas turned into me crying my eyes out over a guy who had just broke up with me. This was her day Mother's Day and all she could think about was making me feel better. She stood me in front of the mirror and said look at yourself. Do you see what a beautiful person you are inside and out. She was so concerned with how I was feeling. She asked me do you want anything can I give you anything before you leave? I said mom take the pain away. She said she wished she could. I will always remember her that way. Making sure everyone else needs where met before her own. With that said I truly had a wonderful mother. She will be dearly miss and loved by so many.

To the Allen Family,
Our deepest sympathy is with you all at this time of loss. It was good to see and reminisce with you all on the day of her memorial. Another Angel has spread her wings and is flying among the other Angels. She spreads those wings around you for protection and strength. I was happy to share memories and reconnect. Just wish it was on better circumstances. God bless you!

I will always remember Sissy. In high school she had a shirt that said "Lumpy oatmeal makes you crazy" and she was always making me laugh.
My condolences to the family.

Beth was a very loving and caring sister, a kind and affectionate aunt to my daughter and a giving, goodhearted sister-in-law to my wife. We loved her dearly. She will be greatly missed.
