    While I haven't seen you in decades, we go back a long way. Your mother used to tend me while my mother worked. Elaine Allen was my mother. Also, I served with MIchael in the Canadian mission lo those 52 years ago. He and I were in the same district. I happened upon his obituary doing some other research. My sympathies. He was a good man and a solid missionary. My best to you.
