RIP Allen . You will always be " Deputy Dawg" to me. Having only worked with you for 7 years , I know that you were one of the most dedicated and devoted officers on NRPD. I lost alittle of myself that day at Neptune and wish that we could have gotten to you sooner . February 14, 1977 will forever be on my mind as one of the longest days of my life
