Stephen & I are so sorry for your loss. Your Dad gave my father the gift of friendship and we are forever grateful for the love he gave my Dad when our mom passed. Truly a selfless man with his time and love.

I met Al several years ago when I was greeting people as they came into Walmart. What a nice guy. He would often stop and talk and tell jokes. From that time on we became"friends". When he came in he would always stop and talk. When I took another job at Walmart, he would look for me and he would come and visit. One day he brought in two pictures of him in a Giant uniform and told me about his career.I read about the talk he gave at the senior citizens about his Marine experience. My brother-in-law was a career Marine and just died at the age of 95. I have not seen him in a long time and often wondered how he was. A good man that will be greatly missed!
