My sincere condolences to Al's family. I knew Al while a member of the Valley Chamber of Commerce. He had a wonderful sense of humor, a true gentleman, and one of the kindest man I knew. He will be missed by so many people as he had such a friendly personality and always had a smile for everyone. My prayers go with him.
