There are very little people in my life that I have been able to consider a good good friend and at the same time to be family. He always talked to me as a friend and advised me as a parent would. After my father passed away he would say to me that I was the son that he never had and I honestly know that he meant it with sincerity. Since I was young he would always say to me "Hey ugly". So I would pick on him back and call him "Uncle ugly". He was never offended by it because it was always our way to poke fun at each other. Memories like this are what I will miss most about him. I will miss the calls where as soon as I picked up he would say, "Hey uglier than me" or "Hey Cambo what are you doing". He was the king of the one liners and you never knew what was going to come out of him that would most of the time embarrass anyone around but it would make me chuckle and laugh. Especially when he would get into it with my wife Anitra. He always would make me wonder who is going to win this one. One of the last private moments we had was when he said, "I'm proud of you Cambo". "You have a beautiful family and a great job." Not many people have said to me that they are proud of me. That's what make what he said to me special. He would always ask me when I was coming to pick him up and bring him to Florida. I would answer back and say what about tomorrow and he would laugh. Well I guess tomorrow came alittle too late. Thank you "Uncle Ugly" from the bottom of my heart and I will definitely Miss the heck out of you.

Well, I am sorry that Al has passed.
We did have some fun times.
He did love the Jack Russell terriers, riding his bike, going camping (in NH); hunting with his friends. He knew almost everyone in Plainville. He would talk to anyone - even if it was a wrong number.
If he could help - he would.
Some fond memories.
