    We will miss Al and his courageous,loving spirit: he has been an inspiration for me in my battle with my illness.

    We will always remember that special time in the St. Paul Temple where your family was sealed for time and all eternity and we know you will always cherish that moment.

    From time to time you will feel Al’s spirit with you and more so in your work in the temples..

    God bless!
