I met Al at Walmart. He was one of the nicest people. Always friendly. Everybody liked him. He would bring in homemade tamales. He had a cooler he put them in. He sold them to employees. They were the best. We were always asking when he was bringing some. I sure will miss him but now he is a angel in Heaven. To his Family I’m so sorry for your loss.
