  1. Just seeing the sad news of Allan’s passing. We were in the same elementary grades at P.S. 99 in the Bronx. This was during the early to mid-sixties. During the weekends, Allan, myself and other friends would take the subway to 42nd Street and we would play the pinball machines at the old penny arcades. Rest in peace. you will be missed my friend.
