To Marie Marthe,

Although Mom and I can't be there in person to help you and be with you during this difficult time, please know that we will be praying for Al and we will be with you in spirit, especially on Monday, but also in the days, weeks, and months to come.

We love you very much.

Your sister, Bernadette
& your niece, Avis

Our condolences and deepest sympathies to Norma, Anita, O'Neal, their spouses and families.

We also want to express our sadness for their loss to Al's sisters, brother, and the extended Jewett families.

Al was very dear to us. He was a very kind, thoughtful and generous man who was always willing to help or make us laugh by entertaining us with his stories, singing, and dancing. He had an infectious smile and laughter. We felt like he was already part of the family the very first time we met him. We will miss him.

Al and all of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
