Take comfort in the many good memories that you have of Al. Friend to all and someone who always managed to put a smile on your face with his quick wit, and hunting stories. Now Al can sit on watch and watch for "the big one" comfortably. Great husband, father, son, brother, just plain great guy. Our deepest sympathy to you.

I was greatly saddened to hear about the passing of Al. He was a really great person! I''ll always remember him for making me smile and laugh whenever I saw him. There was an infectious quality to his jovial nature that no one could resist. No matter how low or how happy you were feeling, when Al showed up, he would leave you laughing. That was Al. My fondest memory of him is when he announced he was going to do a really big "watermelon" at my graduation party, and then he broke our diving board. It wasn''t quite what he was going for, but we all had a really good laugh. That was Al.

Condolences to Kelly, Amanda, Ryan, and the whole family, from Timmy, Jenny, and Julia Donahue.
