Mrs. Weg
I worked with Al at the Mitchell Police Department and the RSVPatrol before I moved to Nebraska. He was such a great person and so willing to anything asked of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Tina-Bellevue, NE

Our sympathy goes out to you, Martha, and your family in the death of you husband, dad and grandpa. Alfred will be missed, but he is in a much better place, no more suffering.
I taught with Alfred when he taught in Worthington, always enjoyed talking with him.
