Condolence & Memory Journal

Michele and family - I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Alan. My first memories of him will always be the softball games I used to attend with my dad. I always wondered how he hit the ball so far! he was also my first boss in the forwarding industry. A great man. My condolences to you all.
