    “Death leaves heartache no one can heal. Love leaves memories no one can steal”. While my heart aches for the loss of such a wonderful man, I know he is in a better place. I am left with some amazing memories and am so grateful to have had Grandpa Allspach as part of my life! Love to all the family, may the love you have for him heal for his lack of presence.

    Verle and I enjoyed meeting Vince at several back yard parties for Gio and other children in your family. He and Verle talked quite a long time about their service to our country. We are so sorry for the loss of such a good man. Our prayers are with your family.

    Gone but never will be forgotten by his loving family. I am sure he leaves a very large void in each and every one’s hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you. May God always walk with you during this difficult time.
