To the family of Albert:
My deepest condolences condolences with your loss. God promised that soon he will:” Wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry, nor pain be anymore.”(Revelation 21:4)
I pray that God continues to strengthen you all during this difficult period.

As a friend of Al's from Sunnyview Wellness Center, myself and the many friends he had will miss his greatly. He was a man of conviction when it came to his family which he loved, his love for the Lord and his work at the gym to keep himself fit despite his disability. Al always had a smile on his face and was more than willing to share a story. He told me where the best place was to pick blueberries and had even shared recipes which were always appreciated. Al will be missed. My sincere condolences to his entire family.

So sorry for your loss. Al was one of a kind we had some great hunting and fishing adventures together. I’ll never forget his laugh and huge heart. He was a man’s man and loved His family. I’m so glad he is in heaven and loved the Lord! One day Al we will meet again and enjoy the presence of Jesus together. Praying for you Laura and all of the family during this time.
