    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the Allred family in the passing of Delores. Such fond memories and close associations with all the family when they were our neighbors in Burley 11th ward. The neighborhood hasn’t been the same since. Really missed them when they moved to Preston. We know she is in a better place now and that we will all be able to see her and other family members again. What a comfort. Your parents are trully great examples to all of us as well as to all ther family and friends. May our Heavenly Father bless all of you in this hour of need.
    All our love, The Clegg family, Leon and Dori
