Sorry big brother for taking a few days to write to you. I guess that's my way of hoping this was just a nightmare... I know it's not a nightmare now, I honestly don't know how I'm going to be able to accept. I've been angry, hurt now I just numb. I could go on an on, I'll just end this because I know what we meant to each other. I love u so much n will miss u everyday. I'm not saying goodbye cause we will reunite. R.I.P my brother...

✝️🕊🙏😇A good heart has stopped beating, but a good soul ascended to heaven,
In these moments of loss, words are useless & cannot describe or convey our feelings. God be w/ you & grant all His lovong peace & healing.
A beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God, leaving loneliness and sadness, but that same soul rejoices in heaven ......R.I.P. Al, & watch over us.
A Rosary & Mass was said for Al today.
I couldn't be there w/ DODIE & FAMILY, but love, hugs & healing prayers are sent U're way.

Love to all,

Eudolia Arabie

Well my baby brother, I really don't know how to begin. I always felt the need to try and protect you . I knew I could always lean on you and you could always lean on me. You were a great guy who was loved by everyone. My life will never be the same without you. There are no words to describe how much I will miss you, Please always protect me. May you rest in peace my sweet baby angel. Until we meet again!

I am thankful for the blessing of Al to our family. I remember many summer vacations of hunting with Al by the river. Al had some challenges in his life. It is my hope that people in this world who had challenges of health or struggles might be ushered forward to a seat up front nearest the Lord Himself in heaven.

The best way to describe Big Al would be A Gentle Giant. He would do whatever he could for you. We spent endless amount of Fishing Trips together and just casual visits at my home. The only thing I know that he loved as much as fishing would be his love for music. I remember how proud he was of his Bose 901 Speakers. We went to many concerts and we always wanted to go see Paul McCartney but never did. I'm playing some today for you Buddy. Love you and miss you my Brother. Till we meet again, lots of Love!
