Sometimes my mom and Uncle Al would be at the adult day care program on the same day. It always touched my heart that Uncle Al would put his sweater around my mom when she was cold. Even when he wasn't well, he showed that he was a very caring and loving brother. Thank you Uncle Al for taking care of my mom. It meant the world to me.

There are so many great memories that our families have to treasure. We were so blessed to call you uncle.

Love,
Wendy

Elmer will be missed! I missed him at our retirement picnic this summer. He was a great sales rep for the NH Lottery. He never had bad word to say about anyone. I will miss him❤
