Deepest condolences to the family. Although we were not blood related Al was family to me and my sons. The kindness most caring neighbour anybody could ever want. Al was there for me and my boys many times. His kindness will never be forgotten. Many stories he shared with me about his children through the pictures he shared I could see the love in his eyes as he talked about them. When my son started his first job Al was there to lend a hand and when I couldn’t bring him back and forth to work Al was more than happy to help out. Helping my boys fix their bikes, and being like a caring grandfather always watching to make sure they stayed safe. Al was there to help me whenever I needed anything. From light fixtures, drywall, and car repairs there was nothing he couldn’t help with. The night he knocked on my door and told me he couldn’t bring down my garbage I know it was bad. I watched over the next couple weeks as the man who seemed so strong to us faded more each day. 3 days had passed and I didn’t see him outside at all. This was totally unusual and not a day went by and he wasn’t outside checking on the chickens or going for a walk. I decided to go visit him it was then I realized how sick he was. He spent an hour or so showing me pictures and praising his children, telling me all about Toby in Alaska, how hard Adam work while away and about how much he loved their moms. He said many a times if he could do things differently he would have done so many things different. I enjoyed my chats with Al, he was a kind gentle man with love and kindness for the people around him. The very next day he called and needed a ride to the hospital. I was more than happy to be able to help him. When I got to his apartment and seen him I knew it would be the last time I would ever see Al walk down the lane or see him chase the chickens out of my yard. We chatted on our way to the hospital and although sick when my son called he was still cracking jokes with him about his girlfriend and told him to be a good man and look out for his mother. Al is greatly missed by myself and my sons he will never be forgotten and will always hold a special part of my heart.

To the Jeans family: so sorry for your loss I feel it as well we grew up together in Bishop’s Falls we were like family, hugs and love. Marie.

Erin, Adam and to all the family,
It has been a few years since I have seen Al but he still had that great smile on his face.
We all shared a lot of great times together especially when I worked at the Great Canadian Dollar stores.
Cherish the memories.
