Melanie, I am so sorry to hear the loss of Al. He was a great friend and enjoyed spending time with him at Paul Freed's and at the camp. I laughed so hard playing horse shoes with him and Carl. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the girls and the entire family. He will be missed and now, God has another angel watching over us.
