Mr. McAlister was larger than life to me. He always had stories to tell and loved to hear your stories. I had wished often, that the Lord would have given him two lives, he had way too many ideas to accomplish in one life span. I hold him and his kindness close to my heart. A very important man who loved his employees and they loved him. It was like a large family working at Downey and that's what you hear from most who had the privilege to work for this great man. I know he has gone onto Glory where his LORD is. Love to his family and I thank you for sharing him with us. May the peace that surpasses all understanding fill your hearts and homes as you go through this time of great loss.
