I knew Alan for 50++ years. I had a teenage (16) crush when he was in the army. He was cute in that uniform and had an impish smile. He met Carolyn shortly after. I will miss that smile, my friend.

I will never forget you as a patient. You were always stern and knew what you wanted. You didn’t always agree with us. You were even difficult at times but you always laughed afterwards and apologized for being so stubborn. You always knew deep down that us medical staff were right and always looking out for you. Your wonderful wife always kept you in line, she was great.
You will be missed by many. Prayers to your family during this difficult time. Thinking of them all.

Rest in peace,

Your south red nurse at Dobie Road, Molly.
