My Uncle Al was a wonderful human being. I have fond memories of going to Uncle Al\'s for the holidays and spending time with the family. He had the best sense of humor and the silliest jokes. He would get such a kick out of his own jokes and laugh his distinct laugh. I always loved that he referred to cats as \'chickens\' and dogs as \'ducks\'. I loved him very much and will be missed dearly.
