    Linda and Family,

    While there is an empty chair at the table and gatherings you have so many memories that can't be taken from you. I grew up with Al and we had a great time as kids building tree forts, playing sandlot softball and hanging out. Al was always a gentle soul and cared deeply for his friends. While I have not seen Al and Linda much in the past years I will always have a fond memory of my buddy.

    I am glad Linda is surrounded with family. God will heal the hurt in his time.

    I am sorry you all have to go through the pain of loss.

    God Bless you all,
