My sincerest heartfelt condolences to Al's family and friends. But what a long and memorable life! Loved Al on "The Odd Couple". You would think that his cop character packed a kid's cap pistol, the way Oscar (another nonagenarian, Jack Klugman) brow beat "Murray" and tied up his tongue in knots. What a lovable guy, who brought warmth to every show he performed on. We miss you Al!

Oh, how sad I am to hear of Al's passing. I can call him by his first name, because his beloved tv characters were always welcome into my home.. and I feel like I just lost an old friend. Some actors play their parts very well - but others "become their parts" - and you can't rate "real".. I'm so happy that he was part of all your lives for so many years - and that you "shared him" with us tv viewers for many of them.. TV Land was a kinder, gentler place when Al was a part of it.. He's definitely one of those I'll be looking forward to meeting in Heaven... God bless you all.

What could I say about Big Al, 1. is I'm so deeply sorry when I heard that we lost a great like AL who used to say YEP YEP YEP will be truly miss by his Molinaro family, also by his TV Family as will, I could see him right now in heaven that he is playing porker while joking, laughing while talking everything with Oscar, Felix and just maybe he will get a police call to duty call because that what did when he played Maurray on The Odd Couple, also, he took over Aronald's part owning the Aronald's Driven Inn on Happy Days he made us all laugh like any thing, plus play a part as twin brother the presit when The Fonz wanted to get chirstening on the show, he married Chachi's Mother on show an they both came back when Joannie & Chachi got married the end of the Happy Days, he made us all Happy! My thoughts , Prayers are with entire Molinaro Family at this difficult time! Like He says YEP YEP YEP....
