    Marilyn, Rich and family- You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Sorry to learn of Al's passing. Is is tough to lose a parent, because you wish you had asked a few more family questions and wrote them down. Both of us have lost both parents, and then you are the OLDER generation!! Be good to your Mom. Take care Bonnie

    Hello Richard I am so sorry to learn of your dad's passing. Quite a few years ago, I remember meeting your parents during one of their visits to Wilmington. Though brief, I was still quite impressed. You always spoke highly of your parents and I know your dad will be missed greatly. During this difficult time, know that my thoughts will be with you and your loved ones.

    Sorry to read of Alvin's passing. I worked with Al for many years at the crane service. He was a great guy and fun to work for and with. I still hold many fond memories of my days there and time spent with him at the shop and later on job sites. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Dave Krenik
