Gloria and family,
I wish I had words of wisdom right now to ease your pain, I hate to think of any of you feeling what is only natural at a time like this.
We all loved Al very much, as well as you. He will never be forgotten, and you are always remembered by the folks that have been in your life for so many long years at Black Mountain Campground. Also the ones hwo have only known you a few years.
I wish things could remain the same as they were, and we could go on like we always have. Al and you sitting by that campfire,and people stopping in to see you always. I bet they couldnt wait to get there to see you both.
You will always be remembered by many people....
May God surround you with his love and comfort.
