A Tribute to Alan from the Saddler Family:

Alan you were a brother to us, not just a brother-in-law. Throughout our crazy hectic family, you always stood by and shared all of our moments, both the good and the bad. You were there for every wedding, birth, death, sickness and everything in between. Even though you were quiet and rarely spoke your mind, you always had wisdom to share and words to help us through the moment. Alan thank you for your kindness and turning the situations that seemed impossible into the possible.

We, the Saddler family will miss you dearly.
