    Uncle Al, I am so glad I braved the snowstorm two weeks ago and went up your mountain to visit you. It was great to hear all your memories of dad and all my uncles, some of which I had never heard. Good bye for now. Will keep you in my heart. Love, Cil


    Mary Ann (Parent) Stiles

    Uncle Al, you were the best uncle we could ever have. I am sorry I haven’t seen you recently. You were always so happy and so much fun and saw the best in everyone. You and Aunt Pat have been an inspiration to me and many others. Good bye for now. Love you!


    Johnny Parent

    Uncle Al- You will be sadly missed, I can still remember the the times you would deliver Mom and Dad some great meat, watching the old racing movies,taking that wild ride down the river in your speed boat, taking Dennis and I, for rides in the truck.You were and always will be the daredevil of the Parents, you will never be forgotten, always in my thoughts. Love Johnny


    Jeannie Sheehan

    Uncle Al, you were always the best. You never had a bad word about anyone. You always saw the best and the funniest in people. You and Aunt Pat were the best parents because the kids were always the most important in your lives. You worked hard and you played hard. You were always the daring one. I will never forget when you took my Volkswagen (without my knowledge) on the ice at Long Pond. You stated you wanted to see if it would float. Thank God the ice didn’t break. I will always love you. You have so many loved ones waiting for you that I know I will see you again. In the meantime I will remember you with very fond and loving memories. Your loving niece, Jeannie


    Gail & Bob Brown

    Uncle Al, you will always be in our happy memories because of the limitless joy that you brought into our lives. One of my menu memories Was the time we went into Boston to see a movie and on the way home you were driving (wrong way on a one way street, according to you, you were only going one way). That was the night Bob asked me to marry him because after driving with you he wasn’t sure that he would get another chance. Thanks to you we have so many wonderful memories. All our love!

    Love you
