"We both rode home crying, but forgot about it and remained friends. I talked to our mutual friend and classmate John Laslo, and he recalled that when we played Pom Pom Pull Away, Allen always won because he was fast and agile. Great memories of a good long time friend.

"I attended Garfield grade school, junior high school and high school with
Allen. I remember attending cub scout meetings with him at his home, hosted by his family.  Allen and I attended a church sale across the street from Garfield and I bought a blank gun for $ .25 cents. Later, on our bikes we got into an argument over the ownership which ended up in my and his first fist fight. Nobody won."
