    Alan and I shared a very special and unique relationship. We met at a christian conference in the early 90's in Ft. Worth. We just happened to be sitting next to each other., 2 strangers, who loved our Lord and Savior and became good friends because of our relationship with the Lord, I did not see much of Alan because of distance but we visited on the phone many, many times, sharing concerns and praying and also sharing scripture and what the Lord was doing in our lives. I love Alan as a brother and he loved me in return as his sister As I said we had a unique relationship with the Lord Jesus in the center. The last time Alan and I visited each other was about 2 months before his death. He was in the hospital in Houston because of neck surgery. We spend 3 or 4 hrs. together and as always our conversation was centered on the Lord and His goodness. Even thru his illness, He never spoke ill of the Lord or asked the question so many Christians ask, why me Lord. l will miss my friend but I can say with all sincerity that I am so very happy for Alan because he is in Glory with His Lord whom he loved with all of his heart, I will join you one day dear brother.

    Alan was the accompanist for my advanced ballet class at Lamar U. in the early 1970s. His music always inspired the dancers --and he always played exactly what was best for any exercise or combination. We were all very grateful to him and for his abundant talent.

    My prayers and condolences for the family and friends of Alan. I knew him in high school and always amired him for his talent. I remember that smile always across his face. It was nice to see it once again in the video, beautifully done. I wish I had stayed in touch over the years but never saw him after high school. But I have fond and fun memories of him from those days. He was a wonderful person. Rest in the arms of our Lord & Saviour. May the Holy Spirit comfort his family.

    I was one of Mr. Carpenter's students in the Rosemont Orchestra for 4 years. Thank you so much Mr. Carpenter for beginning my music journey and being the first person to recognize my potential in music. I am truly blessed to have had you in my life. Thank you.

    My name is Vanessa and Mr. Carpenter was my orchestra teacher for 3 years and he taught me many things, like how to play the violin, how to be a better person, and how to get through life. I will cherish and hold on to these lessons for the rest of my life.

    Alan was my good friend and also my family for many years in Dallas. He was an amazing musical talent with piano, organ, violin, and viola. An excellent teacher, he was proudest of his last strings class at Rosemont that achieved highest ratings in U.I.L. We were there for each other over the years. He was loved by all and never lost his Christian faith. I will miss him very much and am very very sad. My sincere condolences to all the family that he loved so much. God Bless and keep all of you.

    Alan was my childhood neighbor and companion. We both had a passion for music and a disdain for math. My mother tutored us both. Alan recently told me that he would never forget how she chewed gum as she tried to teach us the importance of angles and theorums. We played piano duets together and we played in quartets at piano recitals. His musicality was exceptional, his friendship even more so. I loved him like a brother.

    My condolences and heart felt symphathy to the family and friends of Alan Carpenter. He was a devoted teacher/facilator to his student at Rosemont Schools (Dallas) and many others. I had a passion for music and wanted everyone to appreciate it as much as he did. His thirst for life was relentless. I shall truly miss my confidante, encourager and friend.
