As Larry’s youngest son I send my condolences with my dad Larry. Though we lost contact we always loved him. May he R.I.P.
Nora, so sorry to read about Al’s passing.
He was always so cheerful and you just knew he loved you so very much.
Thinking of you.
Dear Auntie Nora,
With sincere love I have fond memories of Uncle Al, he always brought a smile to my face. His humour and quick wit will last in my memories.
Esther Wunderlich sends her prayers and love.
Dear Auntie Nora,
We are sending our love and prayers during this very sad time. We are so glad we got to visit with you both at your home in Chase. Al was a man who enjoyed life and we’ll remember his humour and stories. Sorry we cant be there with you, but you and the family will be in our thoughts Friday.
love and hugs from all of us.
My dear Auntie Nora I am sending hugs. Imagine having had such a joyous man in your life … Al brought smiles to my face whenever together at Wunderlich family gatherings. Music such a soothing part of life and from what I remember hearing his family was full of music.
Sad that such a person had to be taken so early.
Thoughts are with you, Maureen, Janet, Lisa and their families and of course the Martin clan.
Love Cille (Lucille) Wunderlich
