We only had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Al through the last four Holy Cross football seasons, but our life is richer for it. He will be fondly remembered as a kind, soft-spoken, full of life, family-loving gentleman. We looked forward to visiting with him at the games and were amazed at his spirit, strength, and endurance. May you feel his presence in your life more than his absence as he looks down from the best seat in the stadium.
