Not sure what to say?

Al was a great prankster growing up. Our most joyful experience was watching him laugh while reading the Sunday Funnies. It was so refreshing to watch his expressions. He lived the excitement of the old Western Movies helping the good guys win. His knowledge of the Bible surpassed mine by a country mile, but we often discussed the scriptures. We will feel his absence for a long time. Love and Hugs. Kathleen & James Kyles, Flint, TX
