Al,

While I got to meet and sit next to your remarkable son Andrew at last Fall's Hall of Fame dinner, I'm truly disappointed that I had not gotten the opportunity to know your truly amazing daughter Sara.

Rita and I will be away this week, but please know that we both will be keeping all of you in our prayers!

Sincerely,

Gene and Rita Boyle
