Al was a good friend. We go back at least 50 years and we played on many bands together. He was a good musician and a great guy. We will miss him. I am sorry that I couldn't make the funeral due to a medical appointment.

Our condolences to Al's family. He was a pleasure to work with and we always enjoyed seeing him when he would have time to stop by and visit with us after he retired. We will miss him.

I can hardly believe his time is up. I've know Mr. and Mrs. Anderson for more than 50 years as a friend of their daughter, Alison. It's almost like my own dad. Keeping up with the Andersons in housekeeping, work, career, home style and raising children has always been my goal. They always made things better. I know time passes and the inevitable happens, but this is hard to bear. I love the Andersons and always will. Good memories of a family man and his family I will always carry in my heart.
