Dear Family, Al was so special to our family; his generosity towards our children will never be forgotten, with regards to his beach home. There was so much joy in the atmosphere last evening at the funeral home. The joy of Kaylor’s engagement, Catherine’s upcoming new baby, and Al seeing Jesus for the first time are milestones of comfort. Joy, joy, joy is what we saw and felt last evening! Al will be missed. Tory and Trenton
