    My deepest sympathy to Augustina and to Randy, Susan and family. It was very sad to hear of Al’s passing. He was my neighbor at Bench II and we thought the world of him. Al was always so pleasant, a very gentle and kind man. He will be truly missed. Warm hugs and thoughts are with you all. Most sincerely, Shirley Walsh
