"He has this love. He gives nothing but love to you. He was just this sweet person. Just amazing," said Rowell.

Sadly, loved ones will never see his smile in person again.

"It hurts. It hurts really bad," said Rowell.

The recent college graduate had hopes of working in law enforcement.

"All he wanted was a good future for himself," said Rowell. "He was going to the police academy in Arizona."

Allen's dreams were cut short by a criminal.

"The person just kept going," said Rowell.

"He was a good person," said Rowell. "It's hard to stomach. You don't expect your last conversation and your last hug to be the last. I wish I could just go back and relive that moment."

Cherishing the moments they had, Rowell is trying to find strength to cope.

"I know he would want us to hold our heads up," said Rowell.
