    "You have all the sympathy I am able to offer , Jolyn, Brady and Alanna. In my correspondence with Al, he never complained and was always positive. He fought the good fight and is certainly in the "better place", no longer suffering. May GOD bless you all in this time of sorrow. "

    "I was so sad to hear that Alan had passed away. We lived across the street from each other in the 1960s. I can remember many cold days playing in the snow and when it warmed up our sport activities turned into great competitions. I have been praying for Alan since I first heard he had cancer. My prayers are now centered on his family for comfort and peace. With love~Paul Seger"

    "We were honored and blessed to be a small part of Al's life these past several years. Our daughters truly appreciated how he would intentionally invest into each of them and how he would always take the time to talk with them, especially when they were outside playing basketball. Al was like a Grandpa to our girls and we are forever grateful, plus we could always count on Al to set the record for the amount of cinnamon rolls he would purchase from the girls. Jolyn, Brady and Alanna, we are praying for you and may God give you peace, strength and comfort as you celebrate Al's life, we will truly miss him!!"
