The mail lady had a large envelope for me. I didn’t remember ordering anything and didn’t recognize the sender.
I sat down and opened it up. Reading the introductory letter I started to sob. Here I was, in cleaning and sorting his belongings and here is a book I am opening up about Al.
Six businesses that knew Al, my brother very well, including the infamous Zales Pharmacy had pooled their monies together and had this book made for me in honor of Al.
I am just overwhelmed and proud. Oh my heart is aching bad as it has been since yesterday when I went to the cemetery to see him and mom and dad.
How beautiful this book is. Places to mark things from the funeral and things that I never want to forget about Al.
The tears are coming too fast now and I can’t see the print easily, so I am going to go. I just wanted to share with you my gift.
