Dear Patty, Mike and Dawn,

You have my deepest condolences on the loss of your Father and Father-in-Law. Col Al was a living Prince. Al taught me many valuable lessons in the art of flying and being a better person. He will be missed by all those that came in contact with him.

Dear Ones,
My heart is broken at the sorrow of your loss, but at the same time, rejoicing that Uncle Al is well and strong again and enjoying the beauty of heaven and the presence of sweet Aunt Es, and all the other loved ones….including my beloved Peter. I last talked to him when he called after Peter died…his words were so comforting. Whenever they were together, they always talked about flying! There is a poem that most pilots are familiar with called “High Flight”….it talks of when the pilot is finally free from earth’s bonds, and can fly higher than he ever has before….and can now reach out to touch the face of God. That thought always makes me smile….I know that Uncle Al has now had that opportunity! You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, and bring you comfort and peace.

Leave A Condolence
