We remember Mr. Al and Mrs. Carrie as wonderful neighbors of ours in Macland Forest. Their love for family was evident as children and grandchildren were present in their lives daily. We miss our chats as we walked by their house and hold both in our hearts. Mr Al was given dedicated love and care by his precious wife and we wish their family peace at this time.
