I am so proud and grateful to be able to say that I am Allen Mackey's wife. We met on September 13, 2009 when I was 22 years old and Allen was 26. We eloped in Breckenridge, Colorado on June 20, 2013 when I had just turned 26 and Allen was one day shy of 30. We celebrated our wedding with our friends and family on June 18, 2016. Then, at my age of twenty-nine years old, and his of thirty-three, I said good-bye to my wonderful, kind, dedicated husband on August 19, 2016. I will miss him and love him every day until the end of time. I love you, my sweet angel, my darling sleepy bear.
- Lauren Bogue Mackey, wife of Allen Carr Mackey
