I never met Al, but know his daughter Penny. Penny is one of most loving and thoughtful people I have ever met. I know she loved and respected her dad more than anything. I pray for the family to hold his memory close and know he knew he was loved.

Nobody could please the Ukalele and sing so tenderly as Al. I will always cherish the friendship we had, as well, his handsome smile.

Holding you close in my thoughts and hoping you are doing ok.
