Dear Sally, Carol and Sheila,
My heart hurts for the loss of Al.  He was such a great man to not only his family but to all of us as well.  He will forever be my "Uncle".  I know he is no longer in pain and suffering from his illnesses.  I'm sure so many people were waiting for him, and I know they are having a Booster Club Convention in the sky.  Rest in Peace, Uncle Al.  Watch over all of us.
Love,
Betsy
