Condolences & Memories (8 entries)
Don’t think of him as gone away, his journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting, from the sorrows and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years. Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched, for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much. His Journey’s Just Begun by Ellen Brenneman. My deepest condolences Carrie-Lee, Connie - Posted by: Connie (Friend, Neighbour and past co-worker) on: Sep 01, 2021

For years (decades) Al called on many of us at Carte International and he always had a smiling face. He was very knowledgeable and he was very much a pleasure to deal with. Rest in peace my friend. - Posted by: Brian Klaponski (Business friend) on: Aug 10, 2021
Many fond memories of Al, condolences to all. - Posted by: John Phillips (Old Friend) on: Aug 10, 2021
We are so sorry to here about Al. He was always fun to be around and I loved travelling with him with work. He always made a long business trip feel very short, you wanted it to last longer because of all the laughter. It seemed when you were with him that was the only place to be. He will be missed and was blessed to know him. - Posted by: Rick Small (Friend) on: Aug 10, 2021
I will miss you my friend. Your love of music and your clever wit bonded me to you. You left such an indelible mark on so many and your ability to cook made many a belly very happy. You will be missed but always LOVED. CHEERS MY FRIEND - Posted by: Doug Neufeld (Friend) on: Aug 10, 2021
Our sincere condolences go out to Al’s family. We met Al through community club slo-pitch and always enjoyed his quick wit and kindness. Al was always an upbeat kind of guy who made our baseball social events fun and we are lucky to have known him. - Posted by: Joe and Lauren (Baseball friends) on: Aug 10, 2021
