We are sending our condolences to Michelle, Lynda and Alan’s entire family. He was most certainly loved by those around him and lived an extraordinary and full life. Among his many accomplishments, acting AND scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro stands out to me in particular, how amazing. Michelle spoke of him often and I wish we had the opportunity to meet in person, he raised such a kind and caring person. Our prayers and love are with you.
