My thoughts and prayers are with you, Al, and the family. I was so happy I was able to see Mary when I visited Illinois. She was a wonderful sister-in-law and person. Even though I will not be with everyone at the service, know that I will be thinking of all of you. I love you, brother.

We had a wonderful time in Sicily with Al and Mary! We laughed so hard. I am so glad I got to know her! I just loved her sweet, spunky spirit.
