Allen, I will never forget how much you loved your horses. I also will never forget how much you would always joke with me and give me a hard time when I was younger. We use to always talk about the horses that I had growing up in Downers Grove. Everyone will miss you very much! Until we all meet again. Heaven has gained another Angel. R.I.P. Allen Brady.
