 I worked with Al a few years and we had been friends since school.  We lived about a mile away from each other for a number of years and anybody that knew him knew that it was never a dull moment when Al was around. I'm so glad I went to see him up at HMC, I hadn't seen him for a while. We had a nice chat.  My condolences to all his family.

My family will miss Al very much. He was my brother-in-law and always had kind words for my daughters and my wife. He was a husband, a step-father, and a hard worker. Rest easy, Al.

I miss Al already. He was a frequent visitor in our home. We all loved him. No one could tell a story like Al. He always made us laugh! He loved his old cars and when him and Andy got started talking about them there was no stopping him. He lit up like a Christmas tree when he talked about his cars and the good old days. RiP Al. We will miss you .

Our deepest sympathy to all families mourning Al's passing.  His sisters who lost both parents and now their only brother.  To my sister who lost her husband and longtime friend, and my niece who lost the only dad she ever knew.  I appreciated Al's sense of humor and the fact that he always came to all our Christmas get togethers and graduation parties.  He had the most jovial way of telling stories.  Our Creator God not only knew the number of hairs on his head but also each day he would have here on earth.  

 The Lord's Blessings To All- Dan and Donna Hershey Family

While many may not think of you as being good with children, when I was growing up, I was your little sidekick. I was by your side at flea markets, auctions, and even at some of your job sites when you were laying carpet. When you took me on my first and only motorcycle ride, you just kept riding and laughed afterward when you told me that, as I was grasping onto what I thought was your shirt as I fearfully tried not to fall off of the back of the bike, my hands, like claws, were actually latched onto your skin for the whole ride. We’ve shared so many precious moments:  our many before-school breakfasts in my elementary school days, our sunrise walks in my high school years, a walk down the aisle and a tearful father-daughter dance, and the births of your grandchildren. As a father is, you were a constant source of security and support in my life. With one phone call, you would drop everything and drive hours to help me with things like getting my furnace running or bringing me a working stove. I could say so much more, but what sums it all up is that you have always been a good father to me.

I am so heartbroken that you are gone, and I am so sorry that we were not given the chance to be with you in the end. I would have been there every day. I know that, from where you are now, you can see into our hearts, and you know how much we love you, how much you mean to us, how much we wanted you to stay here with us. My only relief from losing you is to know that you are no longer suffering. A couple of years ago when you were in the hospital afraid for your life, you told me how much you had always wanted to keep “our little family” together. Recently, our little family had some fractures, and I am so very sorry that we didn’t have more time to repair those. Now, my only hope is that in another time and in another place, we will find our little family back together again. As I sit and think of how much I love you and miss you, your favorite song from the Heart album that you gave me for my birthday is on my mind, and so I imagine you “heading out this morning into the sun, riding on the diamond waves, little darlin’ one.”

Dear Jessica, Denise, and Pittman Family,

My heart goes out to everyone. I am very thankful that I got to know Al throughout the many years of friendship with Jessica. He installed carpet in our house and in my mother-in-laws house and we were very greatful for his help. Seeing him several times at get togethers, he really did have some pretty cool stories :). You will be missed.

Al, I do hope that you are resting in peace. I will continue to pray for you and your family.

Prayers,

Mary
