How little in me that was not touched by Al---his grace and love was simply amazing! A friendship is a light that fills the heart. No soul can see itself, but must depend, each on each, upon a trusted friend. Patti, Dee, and Dawn- I pray your love for Al comforts and guides you and brings you peace, and you take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you. God bless and keep you safe. I love you all~
