In my experience, interacting with Alan was always positive, both playing tennis with him and working for he and Nancy in their Camden home. He was always game to partner with any and all on the court, occasionally he expressed contempt for his own play yet was always supportive of his court partner, "great shot" or "rotten luck" were the norm, enjoying the moment he was in.
Grateful and gracious at home, he was never short of praise for work performed around the house, a pleasure to work for.
When last we spoke on the phone, his unambiguous last words to me were "enjoy life Joe". Thanks Alan for your generous spirit and some wonderful advice.
