Al and I took tap lessons from the same person, and had many conversations on a lot of topics. I was in the audience, the night he danced with Gregory Hines at NSU. I'm sure it was a special night for him.

Rest in peace, Al. You certainly deserve it.

Mr Price was a very kind and caring man. I worked years ago at Albertsons at 51st & Harvard, and he would stop by the customer service booth and chat. I even have a photograph some where, he had given to me of him dancing with Gregory Hines. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Al and my dad, Tommy Lindsey, were in the Battle of the Bulge during WWII.
They were in different units and got acquainted when they started going to the survivors breakfast at Lubys.
I got to know Al through my dad.
Both he and my dad were fantastic parts of the Greatest Generation even though they didn't become generals.
I will miss him like I miss my dad.
