Al was such a special person in my life. He was such an encouragement to me in so many ways. He was our leader for our Tuesday night small groups. We learned so much from him in the time that he shared God’s Word with us. We were sad when he stopped teaching but we knew it was best for him. He had such a spirit of love and caring no matter who you were. I will truly miss him but I know we will be together eternally one day in God’s Kingdom. Love you Al.
