  • I’m sure Alan’s presence will be missed at SPC. Getting to know and spend time around Alan and Joe were the highlights of the three years I spent there.

    Alan was a great teacher, and a better friend.

    Good luck to Alan in his future endeavors!

    Alan Munde! Now those would be some big shoes to fill.
