Hello, Angie,
I just heard of Al's passing, I am so sorry. I did want you to know what a wonderful impact meeting the two of you has meant to me.
You both have been in my thoughts and prayers since our last visit.
His love for you and his family, his smiles, the old songs he liked to sing, playing cards... He'll always be with us!
I love you, honey.
Please know that you and all the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless.
Love, Lillie

Dear Angie,
We always looked forward to seeing you and Al at the barbershop. He was quite the kidder and gentelman. He will be missed.

My heart is with you at this time Angie. I just wanted to relay something that happened the last time I was in Al's company. We were playing bocci ball at the club...and it was break time and he asked me, "Do you want to see something beautiful??" and he whipped out his wallet and showed me a photo of you, as a young girl...I can't think of anything nicer than the look on his face when he looked at you. He was a very special man who's face I was alway happy to see because it meant that I would have a smile and laugh before the hour was up!!! I am so glad that we all met in this lifetime and became friends.

We all will miss Uncle Al. My favorite memory was being driven in his car with my cousins. Uncle Al told us his car was magical and that it could dance! He turned up the radio and began to step on and off the brake so that the car would "dance". I remember thinking Wow - Uncle Al is something else! Elizabeth C. Victor

Some stories from Uncle Al...

One of his favorites, and I hope I get it right, was when he and my Aunt Angie were living in Brooklyn, with her parents, Tony and Concetta, and one night Al came home late and "Cunget" (who knows how to spell it? Concetta's nickname) was already in bed. Al, ever the prankster, taking after his father, climbed into bed next to her. Tony was sitting in a nearby easy chair relaxing. My uncle cuddled up to Cunget and made fake "romantic moves", all the while Cunget making protests, "Tony, no. Leave'a me alone." All the time, she had her eyes closed, until finally she opened them to see her husband sitting in the chair. She turned to see my uncle and gave him a good whack to chase in out of the bed!

This was so like his father, my grandfather Angelo, who played a similar prank on an older woman friend, a woman who had trouble seeing. My grandfather had gone to visit this woman, and it turned out that he was dressed all in black. Unfortunately for her, but fortunately for him, she mistook him to be the parish priest, and my grandfather took great joy in hearing her confession, in front of all the family and friends that were there. Sound like Al?

My favorite was a story from Al's days as a NYC subway conductor. One time while in a stop, he had to get out of the car for some reason. He finished whatever he had to do, and as the last step of his normal conductor duties he closed the car doors. But this time he did it while standing outside the car. He forgot to get back in! The doors closed and signaled the motorman to go, and so my uncle watched his train pull out of the station without him in it. He ran to try to catch it, but of course he couldn't. I think he jumped into a taxi and it took him a number of stops to catch up to his train, and when he got there and finally opened the doors, people poured out having missed the stops that he wasn't there to open the doors. He was embarrassed, but enjoyed telling that story.

We'll miss my Uncle Al!

We, all Americans, are grateful for the life of Mr. Turno. With his passing I reflect on the men of his generation; Strong, passionate, patriotic, respectful. I had the pleasure to meet Mr. Turno and experience these qualities first hand. My prayers are with the wonderful family he created, for the void left by Al is large. Rest easy with the Lord, brother.

Our sincere condolences to Aunt Angie, Susan & Connie. I still remember the fond memories of being a child & running up & down the street on New Years Eve banging pots & pans with Uncle Al & our family to ring in the new year. Uncle Al always had a smile on his face. May God bless you and your family.
