  • Kenny

    Posted on 11/17/15 - by Bob Miller
    I remember walking to Mc Millan school with Kenny & Bobby Doggett & the Smalleys. Kenny took us into the tunnel under Georgetown road & we would hava a nip of his dads' whiskey while we all puffed on one hot boxed cigarette. Grade school mind you. We were hegler-'homegardens punks. I still vividly remember.

    Even if for too short of time, you were well loved. Your sweet mother, sister and little brother were forever changed when you never came back. Your precious son, who you never knew, would make you very proud today. He is the image of you and a bright, successful, athletic man who lives life to the full. Connie did well by him.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Kenneth Ralph McAllister, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

  • Pride of Hegeler

    On March 14, 1968 the people of Hegeler Lane lost one of their neighborhood sons. Kenny was the shining pride of his family and a proud Marine who set a great example for the younger boys in the neighborhood. We are truly grateful for his sacrifice.
