We certainly will miss Al! We enjoyed his smile and positive outlook! Oil Field memories and memories of working with Sally at Walmart! Condolences to the family!

Uncle Al was always a positive person and will be greatly missed. I had the pleasure of being the ring bearer at Sally and his wedding! Thoughts and prayers to the family. Rest in peace.

Dear Family, Al was always one to look on the bright side and never ever met a stranger? With a "gift of gab" and a great sense of humor, it was always enjoyable to be in his company! He will surely be missed! Hugs to his family!

My thoughts and prayers are with you. He was a nice friend to my husband.

Well old goat, I'll miss you. I have to work. Unlike you who said I'm doing customer relations. Lol. It won't be the same without you. You've been a good friend. Tell sally I still miss her

I sorry for you loss.I Had the pleasure of working with Al at Pride of the Hills.

Prayers for u and your family in this time of need

Our hearts are broken for all he leaves behind. These last years have been challenging, but I know also filled with good memories and extra time with those he loved. God bless Albert.

to the family: although i do not know you i have heard a lot about prayers are with you-al and i had a strange relationship -he recieved my sons heart-it was a strong heart and the one who carried it first was giving and loving and a wonderful son to me despite the news media in clevelands summation of him..he had far more good in him then he ever did bad-al was so grateful and jeremy wanted so much for someone to benefit if something were to happen to him and talked about it a lot-i can only hope they shall meet in heaven-to the children of al and sally-they loved you so much as you well know

al always said that he felt jeremys heart made him a better person-i dont know about that but he seemed convinced-it was him that changed and was so thoughtful and kind and grateful to be alive-i felt that the fact that jeremy trained for his job at ccf with als niece-it was a strange connection as in devine-he told me that he knew whos heart it was right away and even knew of jeremy and his personality-i dont believe that this just happened this way-theres a reason for everything and i believe they have met now
