Hi Carol and Albert, So sorry to hear about Al. The last time we saw him was, I think in 1998, he was in good spirits. He talked about the times that my Dad played jokes on your Mom, and laughed. We will be thinking of you and will say a pray. Always Candy (Paul) Richmond
Carol, Albert, and families, My deepest sympathy to you on the passing of your father. I will always remember him, your mother, and both of you. I have many fond memories of our celebrations together, your dogs, Daisy and Sam, and the times since we have moved away that we visited your parents on Pike Street. We all visited the summer of 1998. Mom and Dad spent some time with Al in his living room sharing old memories. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Little Shelly Paul…still the baby!!
Carol & Albert, Let love be your healing. His Spirit Lives On And Always Will. Love, Charli & Steve (Charli Pietranton)
