The Story of Alan M. Kidd, by Judy Roberts, presented at his memorial service. Alan’s parents both came from poor families in the heart of Kentucky Appalachia coal mining country. His mother was the oldest of 5 children, his father from a family of 6. They both attended Berea College* in Kentucky which still today provides affordable higher education to Kentuckians of limited means. TO READ THE REST OF THE STORY, CLICK HERE
