"AL WAS THE MOST SWEET ,KIND AND CARING PERSON I EVER HAVE MET. HE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW IF PEOPLE AROUND HIM ARE DOING OKAY, AND IF HE CAN DO ANYTHING FOR THEM. HE TOUCHED ALL OF OUR HEARTS BY HIS KINDNESS. I STILL CAN SEE HIS SMILE. I LOOK FOR HIM IN OUR CLINIC AND BECOME TEARFUL. ITS VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE LIKE HIM AND I REGRET THAT I NEVER TOLD HIM HOW MUCH I RESPECTED HIM ."
