|Uncle Al at dinner with us in May 2012|
This Saturday we received the unexpected news of the sudden death of our Uncle Al, my dad's brother. He was 71 and died suddenly in his home of a likely heart attack. This was such hard news to take especially being so far from family and friends. However, we move on, as he always said, "death is a part of life, and we never know when our time will come." He had a great outlook on life and after his retirement spent the last 20+ years serving at St. Rita's church, volunteering at the local homeless shelter, and starting his day at Denny's for breakfast. He put the Lord first and family second, not in words but in action. He always attended mass on Saturday evening, and he spent a great deal of time caring for our family members when they fell ill.
