Allan Brown, MD, passed away this morning Argentina time. Sudden death as a result of a massive infarct.

Allan was married to Karina Pelech - both members of ProZ.com under the joint name ACB&KMP (30920).

He was 34 years old and had moved to Argentina from the UK, aproximately +2 years ago.

He was a good translator, a good humored friend and, above all, a good man.

It was a sudden death, he did not suffer.
At least he died in her arms.

May he rest in peace.

José Luis

Dear friend:

Thank you for loving Karina.
Thank you for loving her (your) children.
Thank you for loving her (your) family.
Thank you for loving your friends.
Thank you for your dreams and passion for life.
Thank you for giving and sharing your light and energy.
Thank you for your time here and your teachings.

Last year, you said the following (http://www.proz.com/topic/5479?post_id=34467)

"Terrible Tragedy ... Oct 5, 2002

I personally didn't get to know Monika, but I noticed one or two of her answers in the community...
I have just taken a look at her profile, and it appears that she always had a "Greeting" for fellow colleagues and ProZ.com members. Monika may not have been in the community long, but it appears that she had a lasting effect upon many. Having seen the ebulliently professional, though informal, manner in which she communicated with others, this isn't surprising at all.

I wasn't as lucky as some of the other members, in receiving a 'greeting' from Monika, but I shall send one to you, Marc, with my sincere and heartfelt condolences.
While I light a candle for her this coming week, could you perhaps send her a 'greeting' from me..? Thank you.

As one member has already said - even though many rely (wholly or partly) on our skills through words, meanings, communication, for our livelihoods - it's amazing to see how difficult it is to find the appropriate words/sentiments for such a tragedy. To one so young and full of promise, as well.

I hope that you may continue to smile as she did here...

My deepest sympathies,

Dr A. C. Brown
Buenos Aires, Argentina"


My comments...

You may now greet Monika in person.
We will make sure that Karina keeps smiling as you did while you were with us - after all, you will be inside her ALWAYS.
We will make sure your kids keep up with rugby.

UPDATE - 2003.10.09

I have just spoken to Karina. She told me to let you all know that she has yet no words to say "Thank you!!" but that she will answer here and in the Spanish forum later on.

She is deeply moved by these and by private messages.

Karin, family, close friends and I were together for the last two days but today, while I go back to work, she and her sister had to go fixing some paperwork.

I publicly want to thank all of you but specially mention my never ending gratitude and respect towards Elinor Thomas, Aurora Humarán, Billy Greendyk, Henry Dotterer, Jason Grimes, all the mods, and Enrique & Haydée Cavalitto for helping me out.

A big hug to you.

José Luis

Rest in Peace Allan! Oct 7, 2003

My sincere condolences to Allan's Family.

Maria Luisa

THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: thy rod and they staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

It is always sad to see someone pass away so young. But at least he did not suffer, and that is what counts.
I really hope he will find peace wherever he is.
All my deepest sympathy to his wife.

We are all with you in these moments of grief, Karina. Oct 8, 2003

Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I one was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see

(...)

Trough many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
This grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

(,,,)

Yes, when this flesh and heart will fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil
A life of joy and PEACE.
