It's been so many years that have gone by and I wanted to say how sorry I am, and my family is for your loss. Uncle Alfred was very special to us all, and we miss everyone so much. I will never forget the times our families spent together before we moved to Florida. All such great memories to cherish. Our deepest sympathy and prayers to your family from ours. God Bless.
