  6. so sorry.but just wondering why Denise didn't come on line here and give us first hand news?
  7. So sorry to hear the news. I'm one of the many that was pulling for him. I never knew him but read about him plenty here on the HAMB over the years. He was one of the good guys.
    My deepest condolences to his wife, family, and his legions of friends.
    Vaya con Dios, Zapato. We'll miss you..........E

    Since I had been updating, and since she has other things to take care of, I did it.

    Denise I pray for God to give you the strength you need at this difficult time. I'm sure Al was honoured to have you as his wife.

    A friend of mine texted me this morning telling me the news. So sad! I worked with him for a few years before he retired, very nice guy that loved his family very much. We kept in contact here and there, I heard he was sick about a week ago, cant believe hes gone. R.I.P. Zapato

    Yeah, it is a tough day. I got the news from Denise this morning, although Kevin tried to call me yesterday. I don`t feel much like going out to the Shop today.:(

  28. I only logged in, to check on Al, and didn't want to see this, although we all expected it.

    Al's at peace now, no more suffering, but I'm going to miss having him around.

    He loved the Friday night art show, his Ford's, and his Grandkids, and sure has touched a lot of folks here.

    My thoughts are with his family and all those who loved him.

    Thank you Alonso for being a small part of my life.
