    Caroline, Blain, Christina and Family,
    We are very very sorry to hear of your loss. We wish we would have heard earlier so that we could have sent our condolences in person. We’ve known Al for 38 years as Del was there when Al started his career with Data Group. And in later years we curled with him at East End curling club and Diane played some bonspiels with him. He was a great skip and everyone always wanted to be on his team! We have many fond memories through working with him, curling or just having a few beers with him, he was a good guy, well liked and respected. He will be missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts are with you all at this most difficult of times.
