Genuinely saddened by this news, Mr T. You have been an invaluable and irreplaceable touchstone on this forum.

Wishing you an easy passing.

And thank you.

This is the most saddening news I have heard in a long time.

Allen, you truly are one of the nicest people in the whole of magic and you have been incredibly generous with both your knowledge and time. You are the definition of altruistic and people like your good self are all too rare in this world.

Thanks again for all you have done for me in the past, you've been a real guru.

I cannot say anything different to any of the previous posts. Allen, you have always been one of my favourite members since you joined us. Your knowledge and your posts have been entertaining, informative and downright excellent.

You have been one of the most knowledgeable and helpful members of the board and I regret I have never met you to buy you a drink.

Nothing anyone says or does is going to make it better, but I hope you read all these posts and see how loved you are. May these last months be as comfortable as possible for you :'(

You will always be remembered with ultimate high esteem on TalkMagic, Allen; the amount of members you have selflessly helped and worked with was truly incredible.

Please know you will not be forgotten, and are loved...

Allen,

Sad news indeed. I echo the sentiments already expressed, and wish you every comfort in your remaining time. You will be greatly missed from these forums.

You generously gave support and advice to me and my son when working on effects and preparing routines. We both really appreciated all the knowledge you were more than happy to share, and the time you spent digging out articles etc.

Your forum posts are, of course, the tip of the iceberg - most of the help you gave us (and I'm sure the others on TM too) was via PM and email and unseen by the rest of the community. Adam has a good grounding in routining and scripting thanks to your input, and many more nuggets of advice that are too numerous to mention.

Thank you again Allen. You are a star.

God bless,

Ian

Allen,

I don't know you personally but I was very saddened to read your last post.

I hope you find comfort and strength in your last moments and feel the love coming at you from around the globe.

I hope you pass over into what ever after life you believe in and make your peace with everything from this lifetime. I wish you all the best in this most traumatic of times.

You have my very best wishes Allen.

Alec

Terrible news. Although I did not know you personally, just through these pages and the odd PM, you are one of the people who was generous with your knowledge, helpful and gentle. A close friend of mine passed away from cancer last year. His last days were full of joy and love, with his family around him. I hope yours are the same. Tony

So shocked and saddened to hear this, Allen.

I didn't have a chance to get to know you, due to only joining this board quite recently, but am busily reading through various magic magazines in more-or-less chronological order. I look forward to reading your work there. You will live forever in those pages.
