Wayne and Family: Dianne called me with the message that Tana had passed away. The memories came back as she told me. I remember vividly the great times John, Dianne and myself had with your family. The last time I saw Tana was at the mall with Jeff. I am truly thankful I did get to talk to her and Jeff though brief, I am still thankful for that moment in time. Prayers to you and your family

Tana has been a great example of "what living for God is all about." I was thankful to have her come into my life. We may not have spoke much, but when we did speak she left impressions on my heart that will stay with me forever. Love you Tana

It was such a blessing to our family to know Tana. Even for the short time at ATC, she made us feel like we knew her for a life-time. Wayne, you and Tana were definitely two people that reached out to us and we will never forget that. Tana had such grace and dignity and a loving, funny spirit. We will miss her! We'll especially miss her sitting behind us at church; giving us reasons to smile :) Love, Troy, Vicki, Sam, Gabby & Isabel

Tana touched so many of us in so many different ways. For me it was her kindness and gentle way of checking to see how I was doing. It was months before I knew that I should be asking her! She encouraged me to come back and give the church another chance. Never judging me or my past. Thanks Tana for always being sweet, loving and caring. I will miss you always. Much love to all the Allen family. Jacque
