I was a grade school classmate of Allan's at St. Joseph's. He was a good man indeed. I regret that we have not crossed paths in the last 50 years. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. May he rest in peace.

Zana, the first time we met you and Pick we were with Butch and Nancy. From that time on, every time we would see Pick anywhere he was like a great friend. Every man should be as wonderful as he was. So friendly, kind, humorous and definitely a kind family man. So glad we had the good fortune of meeting. Very very sorry for your loss. Our sympathies to you, your children and grandchildren.

Al will be sadly missed by everyone who had the good fortune to know him. He was always friendly and good natured.
Rest In Peace my friend. You have earned life’s diploma and graduated to Heaven.
