While Al was certainly my cousin, for some reason during my early years in Nashua I thought of him as my Uncle. We enjoyed great times at his "fish house" in Rye. Upon graduating from college Al and Dottie presented me with a handsome leather brief case that has survived the subsequent years and is still in serviceable condition. I have often wondered how he maintained the Bartlett Avenue property in such a pristine manner. Sandy and I will miss him and his wise counsel.
