    Dennis and Betty Allen were a great help to my parents, Bill and Melba Rees, when our family went to Hong Kong in the early 1960s to start our own missionary work there. I am sad that I have totally lost track of the family over the years, and now to find out that Bro. Dennis has gone on to his reward. If any of the family would like to reconnect, the editors have my permission to share my e-mail address with them.
