I was so shocked to hear of Al's passing. He was such a Godsend after Mark's passing. Always there for me whenever I called. He was one in a million kid, gentle thoughtful man. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. RIP Al. Our condolences go out to the family.

Dear sad for this moment. When Linda's father passed away, a stranger at the triple A sensed her grief, and said:"Earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot cure...".

That is what we say, now, brother. God bless....

Dear Billy and family,
I am so very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He was a good, hard working man and he always tried his best to keep us kids straight! He has won more than one good battle in his time, but God chose now for him to rest. I know he will be missed by many, but try to remember all the blessings he gave as he gave witness to what God can do! He will not be forgotten! Bless you all and I pray for comfort for you and all of your family.
