Birthday Celebration for Al at NERC



We all enjoyed celebrating Al's birthday. We all loved and appreciated his kind words, quick and witty jokes, and beautiful smile. He told me he never had such a celebration given in his honor. It was our great pleasure to celebrate you, Al. You will be missed GREATLY.
