Al was a great person. We will miss him when we go lunch at Vietnamese restaurant. His favorite foods were spring rolls and rice clay pot. We share in the family’s sorrow and will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.
I worked with Al and he was always a joy to be around. He had a pleasant disposition and always a smile on his face. He was very friendly and talked about his granddaughter a lot and even shared a short video of her with me on one occasion. I know he will be greatly missed, but my prayers are with your family. I myself had a similar lost last year with my sister. I know what you are going through.
Cyndi, so sorry to learn of your husbands passing.. You and your family will be remembered in my prayers. God Bless You Cyndi, and may God continue to hold you in his loving arms during this time.
I will miss Al. Even though he was quiet, he was passionate and honorable. He knew more trivia than anyone else I know! An absolute delight to talk to.
Best Wishes to his family. Al was a great colleague and friend. He’ll be missed.
So sorry to hear of Alan’s passing. You are in my
thoughts and prayers.
Al is one of the finest people I have ever known. Kind, giving, brilliant, funny. They don’t make better people. He is in Heaven today at the finish line cheering us on. We all share in the family’s sorrow.
It was an honor working with Al all those years. He was talented and considerate, and a great friend. Peace of the Lord be with us all.
Thank you for informing us of Alan’s passing. We will miss him, but know he is with our Lord. God Bless Al, you and your Family. Hugs, Terry & Ward
Al was a great guy. When I would visit there for work he was never to busy for me to stop in his office for a bit to just talk about anything.
Cyndi and family,
