BREAKING NEWS -- THIS JUST IN -- My heart aches like many many others at the recent death of the mother of Larry Hoover, and as fate would have it who would die after her most recent scheduled phone call that day with her son Larry!
THANK YOU Mother for the years you personally called,  counseled and supported me and my leadership in the community., AND yes years ago after she asked me for my personal cell number that she would CALL ME directly so much if my brother J Minor Allen took too long to call her back on various issues LOL It as if it was a national emergency if she asked you something and it took you more than an hour to call her back with an answer to what she asked! . 
HER PICTURE is going up on my memorial wall in my office with all the other "established leaders" who have counseled me over my 40 year public service career.   GLAD to be a part of her legacy and I am going to follow through on all those things that she challenged me on. 
Precious Memories on HOW every summer we would have PEACE picnics in the park and hundreds of intergenerational brothers and sister would sit at her feet and LISTEN for how she personally challenged us all called me on what it meant for me and others to GROW AND DEVELOP positively in our urban communities." 
HEAR MY VOICE! God bless
Mark S Allen
