    Papa Al, You will be greatly missed! We learned so many life lessons from watching and listening to you. Even in death, you were strong and determined to do it your way! We miss you and we love you!

    For the last 4 to 5 months at Tamarisk, I have sat with Al at the same table for all our meals.
    In all that time, I found him to be a real gentle man, very knowable, and a person who it was a pleasure to share a meal with.

    I want to send my condolence to his Family. They can be very proud of him.

    We are most saddened to hear that Al has passed. He and MiMi were wonderful neighbors and we enjoyed our time spent together on Robert Circle. Before Al and Mimi moved, Al made a gift of his vintage chaise lounge to us-he said, “There was a lot of time in the sun on that chair!” We hope he is pleased to see that it continues to be in the sun and that we hold you all in our hearts.
