Just thanks, maestro.

Have known this for a while, but reading it on here still made me cry

Measure of the Man, I told him what was going on and logs on and posts himself

Not only the nicest guy you'll ever meet in magic, but probably the most kind hearted, genuine, unselfish people anyone would want to meet

Would be nice for people to post how Allen has helped them and some heart warming stories perhaps...

Are you watching closely? Then I'll begin...

What awful news. Allen, I'm really sorry to hear this, as you know I always read your thoughts with interest and think that you are a really generous guy sharing your knowledge and experience with us.

Thanks.

Only recently Allen helped me track down an effect I was looking for from an old GMG podcast. He didnt know me from Adam but gave his time and expertise to help me out. From what I hear this is typical of him .

Goodbye, Allen. Your posts would form an encyclopedia of magic. Perhaps the mods can collect them together in one place as a permanent tribute to you.

If you read this Allen, thank you for your words of wisdom.
Badger the doctors/nurses if you are in any discomfort- they should be able to ease most things.

I don't know what to say, Allen has been a great inspiration to me personally, helped me on various things on the short time i have been a member here and is one of the nicest members of this site.

Allen if you read this, i am sending your family my love and thoughts, and i want you to know that your legacy will live on as i personally will strive to be half as knowledgeable on all things magic as you.

Thank you for everything Mr Tipton

Love

Aza
