We are saddened to hear of Al’s passing. Although we did not have the opportunity to get to know him well, we certainly remember him fondly. You were both so kind and generous to include us in your Thanksgiving holiday a couple of years ago and we so appreciate that you welcome and include our son, Jason and family, in your own family gatherings. Our hearts go out to your family but know you will find strength in your faith.
