Al - My favorite Boston Red Sox fan...I will always treasure the time I got to spend with you and Maury playing Scrabble and having lunch everyday for years in the old Courthouse. I will miss your humor, your knowledge and your great outlook on life. I was lucky to know you and I will miss you terribly.

Worked with Al at the court house. Lived just a couple of houses from him. He had a wonderful sense of humor, will surely miss him. My greatest sympathies to all of the family.

I love you Dad and I will miss you. Thank you for all you did for me. I am a better person because of you. My love of reading, my creativity, and my love for building something from scratch - all came from you. I am proud to tell people I am your daughter. 📖 🔨 🖍 💜

My dear, dear, Al, you will always be a big part of our family, even though you teased otherwise! I could not have asked for a more loving, giving, funnier brother than you. I will miss you beating me at Scrabble, dancing with me at a wedding, or calling me Shell. Rest In Peace, my friend and comforting peace to your family.
