Dear Sue and Family, We were saddened to se your father’s obit in the paper this morning.  We have so many fond memories of the bowling league we all belonged to in Eden Manor.  I remember seeing him walk in the morning after he retired and I was still driiving to work down Pitney Road. We were also sad to see that your mom had died and we missed her announcement.  We know Al will be fondly remembered by many.
