I never got the chance to see you during the last months of your life...I think it was better. I want to remember you as I always remembered you. You were always so nice to me and I that I remember the most. God Bless.
"AL WAS THE MOST SWEET ,KIND AND CARING PERSON I EVER HAVE MET. HE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW IF PEOPLE AROUND HIM ARE DOING OKAY, AND IF HE CAN DO ANYTHING FOR THEM. HE TOUCHED ALL OF OUR HEARTS BY HIS KINDNESS. I STILL CAN SEE HIS SMILE. I LOOK FOR HIM IN OUR CLINIC AND BECOME TEARFUL. ITS VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE LIKE HIM AND I REGRET THAT I NEVER TOLD HIM HOW MUCH I RESPECTED HIM ."

"Al from the moment I met you, you were always kind, courteous and committed to the veterans. That saying the good die young is certainly true about you. You will be missed dearly by coworkers, veterans, myself and of course your family. May you rest in peace and I know you will be looking over all those you loved."

Geri, family and friends: may you find strength and peace in the wonderful memories of Al, my thoughts and sympathy are with you.
Tremendously blessed to have known Al for more than 20yrs. He is a man of a quiet, steadfast, gentle greatness. A compassionate, caring "doer" of generous spirit and a huge heart...a sharer of warm smiles and humor. A dedicated, committed man who mentored many without realizing he was doing so. Al would come to the aid of another, literally in a moments notice...someone you could count on always, all ways. He will be missed terribly. Deep sympathy to Al's family at this sad time and in the days ahead. Keeping you in my prayers, holding you close in heart.
Rest In Peace My Friend The Veterans Medical Center will surely miss that smile & friendly voice & The Veterans will miss your compassion toward them.R.I.P Soldier

Al, there are no words to express how deeply saddened I am. You were truly one of the "really good guys", you cared so much for your fellow veterans, family, friends and co-workers. You will be missed by so many, you left a big hole in this world but I guess you will be filling it in heaven. Loving thoughts and prayers to all who are feeling this tremendous loss.
Mr. Carvalheira, thank you for welcoming me into your home for countless meals and events during my formative years. I think of those times so fondly, and I was so saddened to learn of your passing. My prayers are with you and the family. Rest In Peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May your memories give you comfort.
