Growing up on the farm with Uncle Al was definitely full of great life lessons.... I have fond memories of learning to drive in the field, playing with Nellie & traveling with him and Aunt Doris out to Amish country in the summer when I was off from school. I loved them both! Will miss you Uncle Al! xoxo
