Donna and Boys, Big Al is going to be missed by many like me. I only hope I can be as successful with the Campaign as Al was. As long as Donna is with me it will be. Tom and Pat Wilder
We will all miss Al. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss.

Donna, we are so sorry to learn of Al's passing. Please accept our deepest condolences. Thank you both for your Service to our Nation. No doubt Al is now rucking up for a patrol of the heavenly kingdom, which is much more secure with his arrival there. Best wishes to you and all of Al's family and friends. RIP Al.
Donna, I am so sorry to hear of Al's passing. He was such a wonderful man. I only wish we had been able to spend more time together over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys. May Al rest in peace.
So very sad to hear that Colonel Rowe has moved to the next LZ. Al jumped 485 times out of perfectly good aircraft into dangerous places, but he unfailingly directed the light toward his beloved Vietnam Army nurse wife Donna during our times together 'In the Shadow of the Blade.' An officer, a gentleman, a fantastic host, a wit, and a friend. Much, much love to you Donna, and to Al's sons. Happy skies 'All The Way' Al. Thanks for being a gift in our lives.
Bob and I send our thoughts and prayers to you Donna and your family. I so wish we could attend the funeral services. We do send our love for you across the miles.
Ellen and Bob Lally
