Big Al is without question, the most selfless person I have ever met!! He would always drop what he was doing to help others, or just to say happy birthday Babe. His true calling was his love of children. Donating so much of his time to be Santa Claus for kids during the Christmas season, visiting children, and handing out candy canes. I will forever be indebted to you for the love you shared with me and my family. Take care of our family and friends upstairs and continue to watch over us with that contagious smile. The world was a better place with you in it Babe. Happy Birthday Babe, and Godspeed my friend,

Big Al was Santa at our wedding. I will never forget the look on everyone faces when they started playing Christmas songs at an October wedding! It brought alot of laughter and fun to our special day. We will miss you Santa!
