Uncle Al will forever be remembered as a loving husband, father, uncle and friend. I loved how he would play the piano and make us all laugh at his jokes!!

Uncle Al, my godfather and one of my favorite uncles. I have so many wonderful memories of you. You taught me how to fish, taking us kids on many adventures through the years. You always encouraged my artistic ability, have me draw cartoons on the wall of the shop. I will miss you and your wonderful sense of humor, your wicked smile. I know that we will meet again and you are now with the love of your life. Give Auntie Shirley a big hug for me. I love you.

Uncle Al has always been an amazing Unclehe makes me laugh, and he listens to & advises me. Speaking on the phone regularly, we gossip, talk politics, and stay updated on the Family. At the end of every conversation, he says, I Love Ya, Toots (pronunciation: short for Tootsie). To my Favorite Uncle who already knows this: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH TOO! Enjoy making others laugh in Heaven, and well see you when our chores here are finished. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
