  2. We wish we could be there and help celebrate Uncle Al’s life with you on the 12th. We’ll be sending thoughts and prayers your way from California. I’ll (Bonnie) always remember how he was able to focus in on each of us, his nieces and nephews and make us feel noticed and valued. My childhood memory is that my Dad always loved the chances to spend time with his younger brother. God bless you all as you gather this week.
