Condolence & Memory Journal

I will miss my sweet Godfather and Uncle Al. He was always happy to see me and he always had a smile. He was a great polka dancer. He deserved to leave this world peacefully. God Bless him.

In loving memory of a great guy, Uncle Al. I have many memories of him from the days on Sheffield Street and afterward growing up. I always enjoyed our conversations and will miss his hardy laugh and sense of humor and his studious nature. May he rest in peace in God's loving hands.

A memorial donation has been made in his name to St Martha's Parish from the Dixey family.
