He was the best damn grandfather I ever could have wished for. If it wasn't for him, I probably never would have had a love for trains. I remember going down to Bakery Feeds to watch the classic KCS EMD trains go by, and we would always watch TV programs about trains together. He would always record programs that he thought I would enjoy on VHS taps when I was young. I still treasure them to this day.

I have bever fully recovered from his death and probaly never will. It's hard finding the will to live after so much has happened in my life, knowing I will not be able to find refuge under his wing anymore.

I did not work directly with Alan, but saw him in the break room every week. He was always interacting with everyone, listening and encouraging others. His smile and positive nature will be missed.
