Dear Jo Lynn and family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time of loss. Although we did not have the pleasure of knowing your dad, he sounds like a really special guy. You can bet he is still making great music in a pain-free state in addition to watching over his family now. Talk to him- he hears you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

Much love and many blessings,

Steve and Ruth Shewan

My Uncle Al was a very unique man. When I was a little boy he took me to the barber shop for my 1st haircut. When I was a young man he was easy to talk to; he was never too busy. Uncle Al was a man who loved his family, his church and his music. He was a warm and gentle man, a good person and will be deeply missed.

Please accept my sympathy at the passing of your dad/husband. I’m sure you don’t remember me, but I sure do you: Mrs. Magnone….you were the AWESOME band chaperone; JoLynn, a musical hero…Brian, a phenom on those mallet instruments. I am sorry that I am out of town at a conference or I would pay respects in person. May God hold you in His Hands and lift your spirits.

Please accept our deepest sympathies on Al’s passing. We have the fondest memories of being new Christians and Bible Study at your home in Glendale.

We still remember him playing his “Holy Horn” and blessing everyone with his talent.

Al loved the Lord and his family. It showed in everything he did. I do not recall ever seeing Al without his warm, friendly smile.

Once you have been blessed to know Al….you never forget him.

I am 3 weeks out of knee replacement surgery so we will not be able to travel to Moundsville, but you all are in our prayers.

There are few people that can measure up to Al. He was always kind and generous – a true gentleman. I don’t think I ever saw the man without a smile on his face, and am a better person for knowing him.

We loved Al so much. The years of living so far away have never dimmed our wonderful memories of him. He had a contageous love for Jesus and was the perfect mentor for anyone lucky enough to have known him. He was a genius at anything he wanted to do. I still remember his mammoth zucchinis and all the zucchini bread I made because of his green thumb. His musical skill was legendary. I would love to see the joy on his glowing countenance when he beholds Gabriel and the heavenly orchestra. Oh, what a time he will be having!

We love and miss you all. I am working full time, and Robert is taking care of our farm and Libby’s farm and recuperating from a 5 way cardiac bypass, so we will not be able to come. We regret this deeply. I thank God for Al’s life and how much he has impacted us and countless others.

Love and Prayers, Beth and Robert
