My condolences to Mara and the rest of Alan’s family. I met Alan while we were at Keith Junior High School together. We graduated from New Bedford High School together and I just learned of his passing when I went to Facebook to find out about our class reunion this year. I remember he and David Siskin were good friends while we attended Keith. I also was honored to attendi Alan’s Bar Mitzvah at his father’s home in Dartmouth all those years ago. We will miss you Alan!
