Dear Al,
We were so sorry to hear about your loss of your son. Though we never met I remember you telling you 2 put together the mail baskets before you left the firm. We had planned on being there with you but we had a loss in our family at the same time. You have been in our prayers. Just know this Al I will always love you and think of you as a lifetime friend.

Love, Kay and Rodney Young

Brian BJ here from down the street on Comburg Castle Way (of years past). I recall my occassional travels with you and Scott to the Lake back in the late 1970s and my subsequent visits with him over the past 30 years while visiting my dad. We would often compare notes on our two Datsun "Z" cars -- his was always much shinnier than mine -- and he always had a huge smile on his face when discussing recent "tweaks" he had made on his car.

I pray for you, Al, and urge you to call upon the Lord to get you through this difficult time. As He says, "trust Me in times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give Me glory."

We are grieving over the loss of Scott. He was like a son and was always a good neighbor. His presence is still felt around our house and yard. He did so much for us.
