I never met Al, but he was a very special man in my Aunt Arlene's life. She enjoyed living with him and sharing a home and taking care of him. She truly seemed happy and I know she will miss him. My heart goes out to you, Aunt Arlene. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers now you have another angel in Heaven watching over you. Stay close to God to get you through this difficult time.
