Eve and family
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.
I am grieving with you.
I have know Al for more than 40 years and he was a very special friend to me.
He was a very special person, one of a kind.
Eve I have not had the pleasure of meeting you but he was married to my very best friend Carol Kay Dudley Nooft, before you were fortunate to meet and marry him.
We never know when the Lord will call us home but he now dwells in the house of the Lord forever.
Hold on to the memories and be thankful you were blessed to enjoy him for the few short years you were married.
