Al was a wonderful step dad. He was one of the kindest and gentlest people I have ever known. Time spent on his farm is filled with great memories. He and my mother had a special relationship for almost 25 years.
He is going to be missed.

Al was the most honest, straightforward, caring man I’ve known, besides my husband. He will be missed so much.
