Thoughts and Memories of Alan Klumpp
I will always love you and I miss you.
A day doesn't go by when I don't think of him. He was an outstanding friend,pilot and flight instructor. He encouraged me to go to ERAU, which I did. I knew Alan had a destiny to carry out his dream of flying. I loved him so much. One of the most memorable things he said to me was, "You keep going when I know most people would have given up a long time ago." I share this sentiment with those of you who read this. Life is hard when you lose someone you love, like Alan, but I hope he remains in your heart as he will in mine.
Alan was a good friend of mine. I knew him from ERAU - we were both in Army ROTC. He went on to flight school while I was stuck on the ground with imperfect eyesight. It's hard to believe it's been more than 10 yrs since he died.
Alan was a very nice and polite young man, I met him in 1987 while he was stationed in El Salvador(my homeland). He was very proud of his achievements, it is so sad to know he died so young. Requiescat in pace, con amor eterno.....
