Allan James LaRue

My sweet, darling, funny, kind-hearted dad died today.

He was born on June 18, 1941, and died on July 30, 2009. He was 68 years old.

He and my mom just celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary on July 7.

He looks peaceful, for the first time in months.

I'm sad. But I'm grateful.

I love my dad and will miss him terribly, but am happy to know I'll be with him again someday when it's my time to go.

That's all.

I am so sorry to hear that your father passed away today. My heart goes out to you and your family. I know he is finally getting the peace he needed. What a fighter he was. If you need anything, and I mean anything, please let me know! What is your mother's address?
