    I knew Al as a fellow Rotarian in recent years. Whether our speaker was the Governor or a local business person, Al had an unerring social compass and ability to focus on the issue presented to us. His remarkable observations and predictions were well worth a seat at his table. My heart and prayers go out to Candy and the family.
