It has been over a year since you left me. You had no choice. Your earthly body said no more. I carry your spirit and presence with me everyday. You are my light that shines thru my time of darkness. You will forever be the love of my life.

Your proud wife of 43 years,

I miss you every day. I carry you with me in my heart and soul. You taught me about life, people and "things". Lessons that are helping me survive without you today. You are the only love of my life.
I love you

Al.....You were such a great, giving friend who was NEVER too busy to reach out and help someone in need. You always went well beyond any expectations, subrogating whatever you were doing at the time regardless of any importance. You will be greatly missed. You'll always be in our minds and hearts! May God bless you and your family!

Alfiero, you had a heart from your chin to your belly button. I never met a more outrageously generous man than you! Everyone was embraced by you. I love you and feel your light is one that will never be dimmed.

You knew you were loved by Uncle Al. He made sure to tell you every time you were with him. Maybe more than once. I will cherish his big heart and big hugs. He always had fantastic stories and listened to your own. I will miss you Uncle Al.

It is always hard to say good-bye to a friend. It is especially hard when that friend is Al. I met Al under very difficult circumstances for him and Nancy and much different from most. From the moment I met him, I knew he was a special person. His heart was much bigger than his size. Under his "tough guy" exterior was a wise man who was a great listener. A man who loved unconditionally. He was the older brother that I never had. The void in my heart will forever be torn with his loss. "I love you Brother!"

You made every person in your life feel they had a special realationship with you! Our grandson. Tommy said he could hear you saying, "I LOVE YOU!"
You were a good brother to Jim and I! You will be with us forever because your presence was always " bigger than Life!" I will always cherish our dinners at TADS on the Sandy river

Bless our family - the warmth felt is my Dad continuing to watch over us. Celebrating his life comes easy, missing him does not. He gave us all incredible opportunities and I'm proud to be my Dad's daughter. Miss you forever, Love Sis
