To Al’s family: My husband and I got to know Al when my mother was a resident at Matulaitis. No matter what, he always had a smile and a balloon! Even though he didn’t say much that smile was uplifting to all! My husband brought him a Florida Gators hat and he was so happy!

Our condolences to all of Al’s family.
