Hello Al!! I hear an echo. Sorry it took a while to write, I read about you in the paper.
My friend. My friend. You so enriched my life. I always looked forward to our next
encounter....our next conversation. Its been a few could tell me to the day.....Al, you brightened my day..when i was using the walker..i forgot about the walker. You did not forget one individual and remembered all in kindness and respect. Remember the ice storm.. we rode together to work. You wanted to go..we concluded if we go into the ditch we would be there together. You never missed a
beat. Im missing a beat. Big hug and a handshake, my dear friend.

To my dear family, We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved son son and our cousin Alfed. I wished I knew him better. He seemed like a mild mannered person. May the Lord wrap him tightly in his loving arms, until we meet him again on this side of glory! Praises be to God. May the Lord bless you and give you all comfort in this sad hour.
Love you guys,
Charisse Mcpike McLeod & family.
