I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Al was a great man of God who lived life to the fullest. Lisa Humphrey and I had the great pleasure of going to see several historic sites with him including the Lincoln Presidential Museum, Alvin C.York homestead, and Andrew Johnson’s home. He was always ready with a great story snd a word of encouragement.

I was fortunate to have Albert for a father in law. He always treated me with love and kindness. He was an example for me on being a Godly man. I will always be grateful for that! I feel very blessed that he was in my life!
