Uncle Al was a prankster that was always ‘goosing’ you when you let your guard down. It was always a fun time visiting Uncle Al & Aunt Shirley, I think of them often.

To Alan's sons and families, I am so sorry for your loss. I have known Alan forever and was the miniature bride in his and Shirley's wedding. He always had such a great smile and sense of humor. A very kind and caring man. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
