Dear Sue,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear brother. My, how much he reminds me of your father who was my doctor. You had wonderful parents. Even though I really didn't know your brother very well, I know he was a wonderful man and doctor from the other comments. It seems he was very loved by all. Love, Arlene Stone Bilal, San Marcos, CA

Mary, Matt, Kirsten & all, you are in our thoughts & prayers. Al was an amazing person and will be deeply missed.
My heart is heavy. To know I will never be able to walk down to the Lake and see my "Doc".... I will miss his friendship. We started out as neighbors 30 years ago, and ended as friends. I will truly miss you. God bless.
