    My prayers go out to Bernadette,Jimmy,and Johnny. Your dad will be missed by many people including myself. The last few months the stories that your dad told me were always a learning experience.(I’ll miss those). Your dad always had friends where ever he went (that will continue in his new journey). We were all blessed to meet and have a friend in Al. Rest In Peace Al! Fly high!
