Allen Cahr 1932 - 2016


Obituary of Allen Cahr

Allen my husband, what can I say

Now that you’re gone and forever away

October 25th we woud have been married 57 years

But today we can’t celebrate for we grieve with much tears

I think back to your attributes and things you liked best

All your dreams and aspirations that we can now put to rest

Your interests were varied in so many ways

That it always kept you busy throughout the days

Reading, politics, sports and much more

Made you a man of interest for all to adore

We both traveled throughout Europe and the United States

Which gave us so much to remember and so much to relate

Those who met you, felt you were a gentle kind man

And quickly became an Allen Cahr fan

We brought up two wonderful children, our daughter and son

They made our life fruitful with naches and fun

There were difficult times that certainly was true

But we worked it out and always made it through

Your love for your brother, family and friends whom you knew

Will always be cherished by the things you would do

Some day we will meet again of that I am sure

Loving memories will be in my heart to continue life and endure

So my dear Allen please know this is true

We are here today, paying tribute to the man that was you.
