Some of our very dearest memories of our time at St. Paul's was knowing your family. [the 1st time I EVER had FRESH mozzarella was when Al brought it to our house with fresh tomatoes as an appetizer for our dinner ! Think of him EVERY time I have it ;) ]
Red + White carnations on Mother's Day! The Cross plaque in the narthex! Not to mention his medical services for this lady!
One of the dearest gifts was his appreciation of my husband's sense of humor.
Heather and I were delighted to drop Bill off in Jersey for a long weekend with Al while we continued to Long Island to visit my friends there :)
His computer skill to create anything were amazing and our children and we still have the "poster" of our children and grands that he created for each of us.
His strong faith, compassion and sense of joy were effusive and we were SO BLESSED to be able to spend time with them when they came to Florida after we moved back from HI to Sarasota!
Our hearts will be forever etched by his presence in our life. Thank you all for sharing him with us.
Aunt Eileen, Jan, Sue, Steve and families. Uncle Al was one of my favorite people in the world, and I was sad to hear of his passing. (You guys will no doubt get a smile out of the fact that he passed on my dad’s birthday—the ultimate in Barrett/Parker coincidences!) My thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless. Pam Barrett Klein
