  6. Ann, It’s been many years since I have seen your family, but I have a lot of fond memories of our families times together. I am so sorry about Al. We lost moms mother last year to cancer, it is a very rough experience for all. Al was a wonderful person, a lot of fun, and now an angel in the choir. I pray for peace for you and your boys.
