Al will be missed. He was a good friend of mine, as he was to many others. Our friendship goes back to 1976 when we came together here in Austin to work on the first server based Office Product/5520.
Our friendship through these years included family, with our kids Bob, Tom, Danny and Doug, and our spouses.
Al made many contributions, but what stands out to me was his ability to "have fun", while working hard.
God bless Al and his family. May Al rest in peace.
