Prayers for the family for this great loss. Our love to all of you...Barney Allen jr and Barney Allen sr.

Barney Allen jr, Statesboro , Ga

I am so sorry for your loss. Death is a painful ordeal. John 5:28,29 gives us hope to see our loved ones again. This scripture is comforting to me and I hope it will help you too. For more information, please visit jw.org.

We were very sad to hear the news of Francis' passing. Cortez and I have happy memories of our days at Davidson together, and more recently visiting Roots Up gallery in Savannah. He touched many lives for the better, and our prayers are with all the family and loved ones now.

Sincere Condolences To The Allen Family, "Your loved one will never have to face the last enemy, death, ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise." With Hope, Peace & Kindness,

A brilliant one gone too soon. Of the thousands who read our high school science textbook, Francis was the one to notice an incorrect gene sequence and get it changed. Love and prayers to the family on your loss.
