My prayers for Al, Shirley and their family. I had the pleasure of spending 7.5 years as a part of this family. I loved the opportunity to be able to have done Sunday evening dinners for them while waiting on Matt to finish work and join us. I always felt part of the family. His jokes, telling me "Don't be picking on my son" all the while chuckling and winking at me. My life is much fuller having that time to spend with Al. Blessings and prayers for the Brown families, the friends and the loved ones.

Al was such a special man. He always had a story to tell about his military career and his love of baseball. There was never a time that he didn't have a glow in his eye. I remember al not liking Shirley's cat, but eventually he made his way into the house and into al's heart. He was very proud of all his children and talked about Matt following in his footsteps as a longshoreman. Al and Shirley are such wonderful and beautiful people. They always treated me as one of there family members. I love and will miss him with all my heart. My heart goes out to Shirly and all the children and everyone who's heart he touched.
