To the Sheffer family.
I had the pleasurable opportunity to meet Al just a few years ago, at Piney Hill for a shooting match being held there, it was my first time there and Al was the first to welcome me and extended a friendship I will hold for my lifetime. I and other fellow shooters will miss him, but will think of him often.
