    I knew Violet and all of the Allen family and have very fond memories of them. As a boy and teenager, I spent summers at Charlie, Wilf and Jim’s place and these summers were some of my richest and memorable experiences. A true pioneer has passed on and we miss her.

    My condolences and prayers with you all.
