Al Reese was a kind, caring, loving man and he will be missed by many friends as well as his large, wonderful family. I feel grateful to have known him as long as I did through our work at Beacon Animal Rescue. He was an excellent friend and the best advocate for animals anyone could ever meet. Thank you, Al, for all you did over the years and for being such a good man.
