My dearest Al.
You were like a father to me. My world has changed so much on the 29th of June. I terribly miss you. You will never be forgotten.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my future. I will treasure our memories and speak to my children about them. Puerto Rico, New Orleans, Germany, Holland, Warwick.
I am who I am also because of you.
You were the kindest man - my hero.

My memories of Al does not go to events or to things done but to the kind, loving and gentle soul that Al was. He was always a gentleman and never hesitated to assist anyone seeking his help. He always had a smile and a kind word. He was indeed a special person and will be missed.
