We all still get choked up thinking about the last month and a half without Al. Does this get easier? The wounds are still very fresh for his beloved family, as we all try in our own ways to help relieve their new aches, and challenges in life.
We've raised nearly $12,000 on this website alone, not to mention the checks being sent directly to Tami...we've done well, but there's more to do. If you have already donated - THANK YOU!!! If you've meant to help out but haven't gotten to it yet, please do so. Al's family needs us. If you know someone who said they were planning to help out, check in with them and give a friendly reminder. Every little bit truly helps, and the family (and extended network of family helpers) are so grateful for the loving support.
I personally continue to feel Al's presence in my life. There are moments of seeing his light in his kids, and times when I'm hearing his voice in my head when he'd surely be chiming in on a conversation. I know you all have your moments too, when you feel his presence or hear one of his favorite tunes. Feel free to post those here as comments. Keeping his special Al-isms alive helps us to heal, and helps to keep his memory alive as well. We miss you Al!!
