Condolence & Memory Journal

I remember Alan and Derlie from my high school years. Alan was always nice, studied very hard and had a keen mind for learning.
I sat behind him in most classes and he would always lend me notebook paper because I never had enough.
After the high school years, we met up at USC while my now husband of 55 years was in college. WE often went to the movies together and enjoyed Alan's company.
His mom was especially nice to me and made me a pretty little collar in those days.
Deep love to the family and may he rest in peace. I am sorry to see he lost a son.
Love and prayers,
David and Linda Lorick
Columbia, SC

Sympathy to his family for their loss. I am a fellow Carlisle alumni and was a roommate to his brother, Greg.

My condolences to you Mrs. Freeman and Family. Long ago, you live across the street from my grandparents on Johns Island, Lorraine and John Perry. I remember Matt getting off the bus at our house and you´d bring me home from CE Williams Middle. I pray God will comfort and keep you during this time of sorrow.
