    Art & Mary,

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother. I remember hearing stories of the good times you had with Al & Lynn.

    Dear Lynn and Family,
    We were saddened to hear of Al’s passing. We are so sorry for your loss. Al was very easy to like. He remodeled Tim’s house in Stonington back in the mid 1980’s along with remodeling our home downtown Gladstone in the late 1980’s. He did an amazing job. He was an honest and talented carpenter. He was a hard worker and we feel fortunate to have known him. The two of you were such a nice couple. We know that you will miss him dearly. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    With Deepest Sympathy,
    Nancy & Tim LeGault
