I never had the opportunity to know the Masonic author Allen E. Roberts in person. He died in 1997, the year before I joined the fraternity. But his legacy lives on through his prolific writings, which are now predominantly published by the publishing company he started, Anchor Communications. Allen's son Ken Roberts continues to publish his father's books.
Word comes now from Brother Ken that his mother, Allen's wife Dorothy Grimes Roberts, passed away peacefully on July 9th, and was laid to rest beside her husband and her son Brian last week. Undoubtedly there are many of you who did know Allen and Dorothy. My deepest condolences to Ken and his family.
