  1. My condolences to my extended family for the loss of a loved one.
    None of you can know the love I feel for Alan. We had a special bond that cannot be expressed. Only he and I know this bond. I am in deep sorrow for his death, but know he is in a better place and his healthy, smiling, dancing, playing golf without pain.

    I love you Alan. Jean.
    I can’t wait to see again!

    Al was a huge part of my life, and the divorce from his brother can never change that. He was a dynamite personality, someone that everyone loved to be with, that everyone came to love.

    I am honored to have had a person like this as part of my life. I will remember him always with much laughter and love.

    Do not ask how a man died. Ask how he lived. Satch lived.

    Although we had only known Satch for about seven years, we never saw him without a smile on his face. He was always upbeat, and made everyone around him happier to have seen and talked to him. To leave us at such an early age, without an enemy in the world, is a truly tragic day.

    So sorry to hear of Satch’s passing, have so many fond memories of good times we spent together with the Linkester. RIP buddy till we meet again. George.

    Dennis, Pat and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Al. It has been a long time since I had seen him but who can ever forget the Kolpin days? We had lots of laughs and memories. I’ll keep you all in my prayers.

    Love you all,
