Shocked and saddened to hear about Al. I always confused him with his uncle and he would gently correct me until I finally got it right. He will be missed. My condolences to his family & friends..

My thoughts and prayers go out to Jerry and Fabian during this difficult time. I had only a few visits with Al but he was always polite and usually upbeat. He will be missed dearly.

Rosenda and Family, I am praying for you during this time of tragedy. A song by MercyMe: You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times. And at least a thousand times, I've rejoiced for you. But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I how long must I wait to be with you. I close my eyes and I see your face. If home's where my heart is, then I'm out of place. Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow. I've never been more homesick than now...
