Our deepest condolences. A dear friend of my parents, who bought nearly every piece of jewelry from him. I also spent time talking to him and getting an anniversary band from him. A kind man, my dad will definitely miss him. Praying for him and your family. The Qazi family.

Alan and I met over 50 years ago at the store on 95th street. We always keep in touch over the years. He was a great guy and a fantastic jeweler!

I used to stop in at the store in Tinley Park on 159th street and bring him video's of current movies and talk about the old days.

I will really miss him greeting me at the door with his friendly voice.

He was a special guy and I will miss him!!!
