    Amy and Donna-of course you know what a consumate worker Al was and he enjoyed tinkering at West Hill. He may have been my first boyfriend and my cousin Vic’s best friend, but he was a good friend to all of the Vierings. His ready smile and friendly ways will be missed by all of us.

    Hello,
    We are so saddened to hear about Al’s passing. He was a wonderful human being, always with a smile and a story to tell. He was a flirt with the ladies and was a hero to all. My husband, Lee, and I send our deepest condolences. We knew him through the VFW, but he was a good supporter of the Avon Historical Society too with donations, attendance at events and always with a smile and hug for Terri. Al, we will always remember you and send you hugs and prayers.

    Amy,
    I worked for your Dad many years ago. He was a very fair supervisor. When I got laid off he called me at home to make sure I was ok. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you lots of prayers.
