I knew when I didn’t hear from Mr. Allwein that something was wrong. He haf gotten an email address but had not responded for a while. We always stayed in touch since the days of The Quality Inn when my husband worked with him. What a fine man he was and an honor to have known him. Say hi to “Potts” for us.
