Poppa I miss you so much already, it seems to be more and more every day. I miss your voice, your hugs, the way you talked to Ali calling her Poppas little sweetheart, calling Evan buddy, and now that I left your house to come home I miss your smell. I love you very very much and honestly couldn't have asked for a better Poppa/grandpa. I hope and pray I can always make you proud. With a breaking heart I miss you!!

Kim and Connie, I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. I know this is a difficult time for you all, but he is definitely in a better place and no longer hurting. He's with your mom now and you'll all be together again one day. My Deepest Sympathy,

Al was always there when you needed him, especially to work on cars. We had many great times at parties, and always talked across the back fence. I know he is in a better place, and I'm sure that he and John have already played a couple of rounds of golf. God bless you all and I will always remember him. Love to you all. Pat, Greg and Paul Brady and their families

Growing up with Mr. Al as a neighbor was such a gift. I learned much from him about cars and even discovered later in life that he was a fellow guitar player. He always had a joke to tell. He will be missed greatly.
