Al was my best friend growing up. We were on the YMCA judo team together and got to travel around a lot as kids for tourneys. His parents treated me like one of their own. He was like a brother to me. I moved away from Alton so our adult life was not as shared as our youth. His passing was a shock to me and I wasn't able to attend his memorial. I can say that I shared the Lord Jesus with him and I feel that he came to believe before he left this world. My hope and prayer is that I will see him again in heaven.
