Uncle Al “aka The Kiddies Pal” my dad, Richard E Roser, Louise Elfer Roser’s late husband, always called him that. They were a mess together. I always enjoyed when the GA Elfer Clan would come to New Orleans for a visit. Uncle Al was always full of life and knew how to enjoy it to the fullest. Mom and I got to visit last year and certainly experienced the love share among everyone there. Soar forever more Uncle Al and keep kicking butt up there in the heavenly skies. Until we meet again, I love you forever more, Renee

Our Pop always made us laugh “Come on now-I didn’t fix my hair!”

Snuck a picture of Pop during a family vacation at the Biltmore Estate-I can hear him now “What are you doing Ashley Nicole!”
