I'm so very sorry for your loss! Losing a loved one in death is unnatural and not at all what God intended for us. Please take comfort in the knowledge of and promise that God has given in the scriptures that "He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore". (Rev 21:3-4) Until then, we patiently await the day when "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus'] voice and come out" to a resurrection (John 5:28-29) just as he did with Lazarus, except this time it will be permanent. For God has also promised that "the righteous will possess the earth and they will reside forever upon it". (PS 37:29) So, may the comfort we receive from "the God of all comfort" be with you until Alan is reunited with us again. (2 Cor 1:3-4)

Nancy and family,
I am so very sorry to hear of Al's passing. My heart aches for you. I was so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for Al and Nancy. I can honestly say that I loved my boss and my heart is sad for all that will miss him so much. Al was a wonderful and generous man and it was a privilege to work for him. Although it's been more than 16 years since I worked for Al, I remember how his eyes lit up when he talked about his grandchildren. I hope that all the wonderful memories comfort you and ease your sadness. Al will be remembered as a friend to many.

While deeply saddened, I smile when I think of Al. I will miss his smile, his big heart, and his stories of earlier days in Hollis; at Rocky Pond with his family and later as a member of Hollis Troop 12 Boy Scouts; the early history of Silver Lake; going to school in the Farley Building; and of farm days and hunting up north. One of the best early memories I have is how patient he was with my (then) little boys at the bus barn. They'd follow him all around, helping him plug in the busses in the winter and such. Of course, I found out much later he used to give them quarters to boot! :-))))
Keep the memories close, he's still with us.
