Mike and I served together in the North Carolina Air National Guard, 263rd Combat Communication Squardon, Badin, NC. We were in the same section. Mike and I were friends, he was a joy to be around and to work with. He will be missed by all that associated with him. You have my best wishes and deepest condolences. Mike has gone to our eternal home.

I’m saddened to learn of Mike’s passing. Great memories linger from West Rowan Hi. We spent several hours in after-school detention, usually related to library craziness! He was a good friend and I have thought of him often since moving back to my hometown, Salisbury, 10 years ago, especially when I passed by the house he lived in on Hwy 70. I extend my deepest condolences to his family.

My deepest condolences to the Allen family. When we loss a love one in death we feel so much grief and sorrow. Jesus himself experience this when he lost a good friend named Lazarus. Yes he was so sad that he gave way to tears.(John11:11,35) God speaks of a time when the dead will return to a paradise earth and live in peace. (John 5: 28,29 and Psalm 37: 9-11). May these scriptures comfort you, the Allen family at this most difficult time.
