  1. My sincerest condolences to the Allan Needles family. I was a childhood friend of Allan’s and basically grew up with him in Fort Worth, Texas, during the late 50s and early 60s. We were neighbors and best friends, and I have many fond memories of our times together – both during childhood play, school, and sports. Allan moved away before we could spend high school years together and we lost touch over the years. I was saddened by the news of his passing away. He will always hold a special memory in my heart.
