Dear Esty, Betsy, Ann and Bill,
My heartfelt sympathy to you and your extended family; I know that Al will be deeply missed. He was a wonderful person and I feel so very fortunate to have known him. I have so many good memoires of my time at Broude & Hochberg and many of them include Al. He was such an interesting, witty, caring and kind individual. I will miss him, but will always treasure my memories of him.
Warmest regards,

John Hsia

Dear Estelle, Betsy, Ann & Bill, My deepest sympathies on Al's passing. I remember him so well from my childhood days. I wish I had seen him last year when I was up in Rockport. I remember the summers in Rockport and how he & my dad would go snorkeling - they would try to find lobsters, but, always came up "short" as it were....You are in my thoughts & prayers. Always, Michele
