The page isn't large enough for all we would love to say about our years and years of memories with our much loved Lori & Al. Our hearts are broken once again, now that Al has left us. Rest in peace Al.

Next to my Father, Uncle Al is one of the most influential men in my life. These men and their generation were bad-asses; they smoked cigarettes, sported tattoos, worked countless hours with their hands to provide for their loved ones, and loved their families more than life itself. Uncle Al served his Country in the Korean War as a member of the 82nd Airborne. Uncle Al was very proud of his service, usually wearing his Airborne ball cap, and sporting an Airborne sticker on the back window of his Cadillac. Uncle Al didn’t talk of his Country owing him for his service, but how he did it for his country. After Uncle retired, he would volunteer taking fellow Veterans to doctors' appointments when they could not get themselves there. Uncle Al and Auntie Lori did not have any Grandchildren. I will always be thankful to my cousins for sharing their parents with us. When we asked Uncle Al and Aunt Lori to be the God Parents to our second child, Uncle Al said that they were too old. Chiara and I could not have asked for a better set of God Parents; Uncle Al and Aunt Lori were at every birthday, religious event, school events for not just Madeline, but for all three of our kids and Uncle Al continued this after losing his wife Auntie Lori. Bianca and Maddy had a dance recital when they were little; three hours of little kids dancing, just to see your own for a 3-5 minute routine. Afterwards Uncle Al said to me, “don’t ever invite me to another one of these F-ing things again”; guess who was back the following year, and many more after that. Softball, baseball, basketball, school plays; always there. Uncle Al loved Chiara; he said it was because of her cooking, particularly her pasta and neck bones. When Chiara was fighting breast cancer Uncle Al would stop by for a cup of coffee and check up on her; giving her a hard time that he had more hair than her. When I would walk him out, he would turn to me and tell me that’s one tuff lady: she’s gonna be fine. I’ll miss him just stopping by for a cup of coffee. I’ll miss him coming over for dinner. I’ll miss him being involved at my kid’s events, I’ll miss him at holidays, but my family and I will always have our memories of Uncle Al. Rest in Peace Uncle Al; you made this world a better place.

I’m so sorry to hear of Al’s passing. May he rest in peace with his dear wife, my godmother, Aunt Loretta. My deepest sympathy to the family. He was blessed to have all of you in his life and you have many great memories to share for years to come. Love, Kim Waznonis
