I met Al in law school and recognized that he was someone I wanted to have as a friend. We maintained that friendship until he died. His good humor, wit, and intelligence was infectious, and I always felt better after talking to Al. I do hope that Karen and his children can take some comfort that he had a life well spent and is now enjoying the he just desserts in the arms of the God he served so well.

Our deepest condolences to Karen, Jeanette, Ed, and the Jesensky family. Al was one of my best friends - well respected, and an all-around good guy. His mother, may she rest in peace, was an angel on earth.

My father who taught me to lead by example, do the what's right, try my best, respect others and be strong is no longer here on earth with me. I am sad that I won't be able to see his face, laugh at his humor and hold him tight and I am thankful that he looked so revived and at peace when he passed. I all ready miss you so much Dad, I love you. RIP
