My condolences to Aunt Boots and my cousins, David and Mark and their families, on the passing of Uncle Alan. I remember the family Seders fondly. Uncle Alan conducted them from the head of the table. They seemed long to us kids at the time but rich in tradition. I remember Uncle Alan sitting at his same seat at Temple during the High Holidays. While his voice was not quite the level of the Three Tenors he knew all of the prayers and he was one to admire for his love of Judaism. Uncle Alan gave me my first real summer job at the Plant showing me no preferences as I always appreciated. He once invited me to Kingsmill to ride the cart as he golfed. He was a very good golfer but did not have a particularly good round that day. Uncle Alan never was bashful about letting the golf club know how he felt. But behind that tough shell was a bit of a teddy bear inside. As I became an adult and would visit him and Aunt Boots when I came to Virginia, he always would ask me about my family and the kids. He truly was a family man. Uncle Alan was one of a kind and will be missed. Bart (Brett, Jake, Mia)

I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories growing up with ya'll living just 2 blocks away from us. My best memories of Alan are in Temple. He was bigger than life. I can't remember a service without Alan on the beema. That is why he participated in my son's Bar Mitzvah and daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I also remember taking my parents to their anniversary party at the Marriot in Kingsmill. They glowed with excitement and the love for each other. Bootsie, you and Alan have always been an inspiration. He will be missed dearly.
Love the Levingston Girls
