    Linda, Jason, Shawn and families,
    There are no sufficient words to express my sorrow. I am so very sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved husband and father. Al was a lovely man and although I had not seen him in many years, I always remember how kind he was; he always was smiling. 
    My heart is broken for all of you.  
    Please know that you are in the hearts and thoughts of so many at this time.

    I was so sorry to read of Al's passing this morning in the OshaWorker. I did not hear of it in time via the usual communication routes, or I would have attended his memorial. I counted Al as a friend, and know he will be sorely missed on Tuesdays and by his family. My very best regards and condolences.
