Saturday afternoon friends and family gathered at the Zavalla High School gym to bid farewell to young Allen Cryer. Family members learned 9 year old Allen had an inoperable brain tumor over a year ago. This week Allen lost his battle to the illness after 14 months. Saturday friends and family remembered Allen for being an inspiration to everyone especially his dad, George. Though this was sad day the family is thankful the community stood by them during these difficult times.
