    Al was a good man. Not much more needs be said. I’ll miss him.

    A true American and patriot has ended his pursuit of happiness here Earth only to continue that pursuit in the place we call home. His expression of Americanism is inspiring and I will miss the fellowship we shared.

    Al was one the the best! A good friend, a legitimate “gun guy”, international business man. An interesting story was, when a typical news twit accosted him about the legitimacy of his opinion on a business issue, he replied, “I only run a multi million dollar international corporation” or words to that effect. If I were still “raising glasses” I would do so now. “A toast to a guy who was always a friend, and the real deal!” All the best to Judy, too. Do you take good care.

    Liz and guys, so sorry for the loss of your Dad, Grandad. We will miss him a great deal. He was more than a cousin to me but a brother, friend. Loved the conversations we had. He will be missed. Love to all of you. Roberta

    I just found out about Al’s passing. Separated by distance we were still brothers and have had many discussions about faith and life. I look forward to seeing him again. God’s blessings to Liz and family.
