These words cannot fully express my heartfelt condolences, I met your Dad in POGO and he was respected and a friend to all who had the pleasure to keep his company for a game and a chat. He had an innate ability to pick up from typed text if something was on your mind and then take the time to lend a friendly and sympathetic ear to all who needed to be heard, and it was wise to folllow his advice. Less than 2 weeks ago he was asking about my happiness giving little concern to his own...thats your Dad. I will miss our phone calls and our pool games, his advice and tips did not fall on deaf ears. His humor was ever present and his witt so quick and his laugh was hearty, this I also will miss. Andria you were indeed the love of his life and he was so very proud of all your accomplishments and what a beautiful you became...he could not wait to talk of you and your new degree...CONGRATS. He is and will be missed by those to have had the good fortune to share his company here in PO
GO LAND. Love and comfort to you and your family Andria...My sympathies...Roma

Andria, thank you so much for sharing Al's Obituary with me. I wish I could have been there with you. I am thankful you have so many friends and family. I will always remember you and Al. He was a wonderfully good man and you were a very loving daughter.
I feel honored to have known you both.

I've been very saddened by Al's
passing... I didn't know him for
very long and didn't get a real
chance to get to know him... but I
know he was a good man... now he
