Not sure what to say?

Dear Karen,

I never had the privilege of knowing Al, but I did learn from my folks that you had married a minister and that he served Baker Memorial. Later my cousins Derith and Doug Pearl told me that Al served their church in Orchard Park. Karen, I am very sorry for your loss. Al was obviously a man who influenced many people on his life's journey. I hope that your faith will sustain you and that in time your memories may comfort you.

With sympathy,

Lois...

My deepest sympathy to Karen and her family on the passing of Al. I have been friends with Al& Karen for many years and I will always treasure the times we enjoyed together. Al was a good man and always treated people with respect and dignity. Diane Siminski

My condolences to all of Al's family. I didn't know Al was a minister, but it seems very appropriate for the young man who graduated in the same class I did. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see him at the 50th reunion -- he was one of those special people who makes a positive impression on you, no matter whether in high school or 50 years later; he was always such a kind person. He will be missed.

I am so sorry. It was wonderful seeing him at the 50th Amherst Reunion. What great memories of the entire Kraatz family. Prayers for Alvin.

My sincere sympathy to all members of Al's family.
I knew him in grade school and got a kick out of chatting with him at the Amherst reunion. I had no idea he was a minister but I imagine he was a very good one.
RIP.
