Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Al and Family,
I did not see this post until today. Please know you have been in our prayers. I wish we would have seen the visitation schedule. We mentioned your moving tribute to your dad on Sunday School. So thankful he raised a family who has raised their own families to love and serve the Lord.
