Uncle Al and I used to have nice visits together when he worked at the military base in Halifax. I am so grateful that he had the chance to meet my husband Jimmy when we were passing through many years ago. He will be missed by his sisters in Nova Scotia, and my sincerest sympathies are extended to his immediate family. His warmth and affection for his loved ones will be remembered and cherished.
