That Smile

Al was a guy that could lite up a room with his smile. It was always a happy moment when I saw my cousin because that smile and that booming voice were always the first part of each of our little reunions. I have a lot of great memories of Al, but one that I really appreciated from him was when I was in college at Brown in Providence, RI. Growing up in California, it was a long way from home, and I didn't have any family close to where I was living. In the fall of 1984 I traveled all the way to Ithaca, NY with my football team to play Cornell and Al drove Tony and Catherine all the way to the game. He stayed to the very end, and we met on the field afterward. To this day, I always think about how glad I was to see my cousin and his kids, and how appreciative I was that he drove all the way down there. I have a picture somewhere and will dig it up for Tony and Catherine. I am sure Al has God's ear right now telling a great story too! Many prayers to Donna, Tony, and Catherine because as my mother said when she heard..."What a great life Al lived."
