Dear Clara: I would like to send my deepest sympathy to you and your family. He is and always will be a great man and also very caring. I don't remember him so much as to have memories but I was told and learned over the years how he was a super guy. i"ve also learned and got to know him through the letters he wrote. I had always hoped I would get the chance to meet or talk to him to thank him for his caring concern for me when I was just a little girl. Thank you for reading my note and again I would like to say I feel sympathy and sadness also, for I have cried for my brothers loss. Sincerly, Kim A. Kuske

Sing with the angels now, play cards, drink whiskey, tell smutty jokes and have a good smoke with Mom and Granny Lou, and watch down over us all, as you always did while you were here with us. Our love and prayers are with you and yours. We shall miss you, and you will not be forgotten. Love you, Bonnie & Casey Miller & Family

I work at the local carwash that Al would visit with Clara. Al would brighten up my day everytime he would visit with his funny jokes. He will be deeply missed. God bless.

I am so sorry that Al is gone but he is only gone in body. I still remember his jokes, playing cards with you both, and his love of orange peanut shaped candy. We love him and I will say he is the best male role model our family (The Bell's) has to look up to still. Love to you all.
