He had come to NASHVILLE, from VIRGINIA to visit us for THANKSGIVING, which is our long-standing family tradition. He is married & has a 9 year old little girl. This is a part of life that one never imagines or plans for. It has been very difficult to accept. ALLEN SCHLAPMAN was an amazing father, husband, brother & son. We will miss him so much. I have been deeply touched by all your well-wishes & prayers. Thank you. GOD has proven himself faithful to us & has given us great peace amidst this horrible tragedy."
