    Al worked with me in Internal Audit at the legacy Wachovia. I was not aware he had passed away. We had so many great times and many laughs while at Wachovia. He is a dear friend and I was thinking of him today and just found this out. My sympathies go to the family and he will be missed, he was a great man and I hate I didn't get to speak to him before he passed. RIP Al, Brooks

    My old music pal. When we were kids in Chapel Hill he lived around the corner from me. We'd get together and play the blues. My sincere condolences. Jay
