Just can't think of Al without smiling. His contagious sense of humor and quick wit will never be forgotten. A super guy to call a friend. As the song goes Al, "Thanks For The Memories!"

Al had become a good friend over the years since I moved to Aurora, CO.. As everyone who met Al knows, he was so knowledgeable and witty. Always such a pleasure to be around. He will be dearly missed.

Jeannie introduced us to Al several years ago at Legends. We always looked forward to seeing him and Jeannie on our trips to Colorado. We got to know Al better when he and Jeannie came to French Quater Fest in New Orleans.Al was so excited to meet Dr John. Now when we hear a song by Dr John we think of Al. He will be missed.

Al was one of the kindest men I have ever met. Over the course of the past twenty years his affinity for music, intelligence, and bright smile always brought more than words can say and touched all of us in a different and positive way. His relationship with my mother was a ray of sunshine to both of them for many years. I am very happy that I was granted the opportunity to be his friend. He may have moved on from this world, but his memory will never be forgotten.

My condolences to Al's family and to Jeannie. I was shocked to hear this sad news- Al was such a nice man with such a great laugh. I think of him together with John and Tony-laughing like crazy- I hope that's so!! You will be missed by many Al. Rest in peace.

Envisioning a probable Monty Pythonesque response from Al on his passing and all the fuss made over him, as the Black Knight said 'it's only a flesh wound'. Al lived happily within the borders of his world from east coast days to west coast days, north country days to southern days, was gregarious to one and all with his wit, satire, and ability to engage shallow or deeply into any conversation or subject that hit the table.

We spent 20 years working long tax season hours together, during which I probably spent more time and conversation with him than I did with my wife and kids, and I can say the only important thing we didn't agree on was Beatles vs Stones.In some ways our lives were very much the same, in some ways very different, but the friendship always flourished. We did upset the apple cart once and got him to go on a houseboat trip to Lake Powell with us and 4 others one summer, quite a feat considering how hard it was to budge him off the pull his yearly fix of Ocean City had on him.

He talked often of his family, especially all his nieces and nephews and you could feel his pride in all of them. His nephew Charlie, followed him out to Colorado and we became good friends (right Charlie?), I skied with Matt at Vail, met Dan when he visited out here once, and Stephanie and Beau live out here now, and they all spoke highly of and loved the guy they called 'Uncle'.

We are all glad his medical suffering is finally over and keep the sadness away by remembering and chuckling over our personal memories and experiences with him. A New Orleans Funeral featuring Dr. John would be right up Al's alley.

So, Happy Trails to you my good friend, and if you could look up Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan and a few other musicians we both enjoyed for me tell them my guitar skills, or rather, lack of guitar skills after all these years of trying, could use some serious help. I'm sure they are as confused as I am as to how Keith Richards outlasted you.

I mourn his loss but take some relief in that I had the opportunity to know him and share my life with him. He will never be forgotten. He was my soul mate and that can never be lost. Rest in peace my angel.
