He had a very special way of always making us feel as though we were a true part of the family. He was a gem, such a warm, loving and kind man.

  2. To the wonderful Yudell family:We are saddened by the news about Allen. We were just sitting here toasting his life and recognizing how very lucky he was. He has had a wonderful family by his side and really what more could you want? He will be missed by those that have loved him and have known him.

  3. To All of the Yudell Family, I spoke with Annette and we both broke down hearing the sad news about Allen. We grew up together and went to the Schmeizer Family Circle meetings and we children ‘hung out’and had fun getting to know each other. He was always handsome, fun to be with and made us laugh with his sense of humor.He was always a family man who adored Jane, his children and eventually his grandchild. Allen was special in so many ways…He was warm and loving to me whenever we met and one of the last memories I had was when Annette, Gabrie and I went to Michael and Jaqui’s wedding. We had the best time sharing in his joy. He will be missed…even though we didn’t see each other very much, he and his family are always in my heart. With much sadness, I send all of you my love and condolences, Leah


  4. Dear Sophia. When you read this you will be a big girl. We just wanted you to know that you had a very special Grandpa. He had such joy when he held you and talked to you on the computer. His smiles were so big, they almost fell off his face. He loved Grandma, Daddy, Mommy and Aunt Andrea very, very much. He loved the Yankees he loved to eat, he loved to laugh and he really loved to talk on the telephone. So when you are a teenager and your Mom and Dad tell you to please get off the phone just tell them ” you are your Grandpa’s Granddaughter.xoxoxo love, Carol and Noel

  6. To the Yudell family, Irwin and I were lucky enough to have met Allan when we moved to St. Andrews 16 years ago. Although we left the community 8 years ago—Jane and Allan remained part of our life. Trying to stay in touch long distance is not easy—but when we did visit Florida Jane and Allan always made an effort to spend time with us. Jane and I continued to talk and share over the years. Allan was so special and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. Irwin and I send our love and condolences to Jane, Andrea, Michael, Jacqui and of course Sophie. Much love,Sydne
