Thinking of you today and the warmth that you shared with so many including your adopted daughters. I thank God for you and the time you took to speak words of life and encouragement into my Spirit. I miss your smile and your strength. As a woman of God you showed me how to be strong yet with humility.

Mom, you've been gone from us for a few weeks and the emptiness is so real. I miss your smile, talks, handing your hand, and seeing your eyes as I walk in your room. Tears of enjoy come to my eyes because I know you are finally resting. Thanks for being my mother, an angel, strong hold, grandma, protector, provider and a woman who gave so many hopes and dreams. Love you Mommy! Meliane

I am so sorry for your loss. It is a lost to all of us that knew her. She was a great influence in my life and family. She touched our hearts in so many ways that I can not discribe. I am so thankful for God putting her in my life path. God Bless You and I will be praying that God's comfort will take away the pain. She is gone but will never be forgotten. Love You All.

My condolences to the Allen Family as you grieve the loss of Mother Allen. I have many fond memories of my time at Griffin. I remember once when I was going through a really rough time and Mother Allen spoke words of encouragement that strengthened my spirit. I know they were inspired by the Holy Spirit because I did not tell her what was going on in my life at the time. However, The Father knew. May the Holy Spirit
