Still thinking of my Tio, a caring, loving, considerate person. I always looked forward to my visits with tio Al and tia Connie over the years. Sometimes tio Louie would stop by to complete our visit. Tio Al, has given me beautiful memories of our family. Tio Al, his brothers and sisters, all have a loving spirit.
I will always keep him close to my heart.
I will miss his voice on the phone and his conversations will Bill on sports and veterans' day activities.

I will always remember Al’s thoughtfulness at bringing sweet rolls to the Caravan (a mobile health care unit from Duchesne clinic for the he uninsured in the late1990s and early 2000s. His sister,, Sister Margarita Padilla SCL . who was the office manager for the Caravan at that time. He simply wanted to support her and our efforts for the uninsured) . He cared for those in need.
Thank you Al and Connie, ( his loving wife who worked at El Centro caring for another under privileged population).. Al lived the gospel mandate “Love one another” Thank you for your example and your inspiration.

Tia Connie, Gail and I send our condolences and pray that my Tio is now celebrating in heaven with other family members. I enjoyed spending summers in Kansas City with my Tio. And I will never forget the trip that Tio, Grandpa, Bobby and I took to Mexico and California. Tio also taught me what hard work was when I worked with him and Tio Louie @ the welding shop in KC the summer of '69. I'll miss your smile and laugh Tio. Love Raymond
