You are very sweet Jules, thank you. I consider myself blessed to have Allen as my partner, and try to give the kind of support and encouragement he genuinely deserves. Allan truly is a good, courageous and compassionate man. Helping that Kyrgysztanian woman retrieve her teeth after being punched by her husband (described in his poignant article below) was a courageous act of advocacy. It’s typical of how Allan lives his life, and as you say, he really does deserve the very best in return. By the way, Jules, Allan has more than once remaked how very highly he thinks of you and your writing.
