So sorry to hear of Allen's passing. We have not been close in recent years but I always enjoyed talking to him and wish we had lived closer as we seem to have shared interests in antiques, old houses, cars and grandkids. Cousin Bill Gray, Lafayette, Indiana

I remember the entire Grice family at Hoffman Memorial Methodist Church. I heard nothing about his service in Vietnam, I guess he like a lot of others, quietly did their duty for their country. The class of 1963 had a bunch of great guys, Allen was surely one of them.

Lisa and Linda, you have our deepest condolences on the passing of Allen. I first met Allen shortly after I moved back to Germantown in 1982 and we became friends when I purchased my house three doors away in 1984. It was wonderful to spend more time with him when he started attending GUMC on a regular basis several years ago. Many years before his mind began to slip, he always greeted me with the same question (and with a twinkle in his eye): "Do I know you?" It always made me laugh. We regret that we will be unable to be with you on Monday. We are not yet comfortable being inside public buildings with groups of people. Karen Carmickle and Mark Heistand
