Dearest Auntie Mary Ann, cuz’s Bob, Mark, Michael and their families…we are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Uncle Al, and wish we could have been with you this past weekend to celebrate the life of a great father, uncle and friend to so many. I will always remember our childhood holiday and weekend visits to the Vlasic home in Center Twp, and years later stopping by for a cold Mic with Uncle after college classes or b-ball with Mike. The family reunion we had in Myrtle Beach in ’91 is especially memorable since Uncle was my golf cart mate in 100 degree heat, and he still beat all of us youngsters! Living so far away for so long, we are truly fortunate to have had a few chance meetings at the Mall or Margie’s shop recently to catch-up on life in general. So dependable, he even had Auntie there on time after several inches of snow that made the rest of us 2 hours late! Yes, Uncle Al was truly a man to be admired, with so many gifts and much wisdom to share with us all over the years. Thank you for that! May God grant you eternal peace, and hold Mary Ann close and safe, and keep the boys and theirs happy and healthy forever. We miss you guys!! Victor & Diane

Mary Ann and family.... I am speaking on behalf of my Mom and Dad "H" and Mary Verrico, who both loved Al very much...So much time has gone by.....My Dad is passed and my Mom resides in a care home. I myself remember Al so fondly from the time I was a little girl. He would always tease me about still drinking a bottle because I was at least three years old at the time and he would say...Vanessa are you still drinking a bottle?, and I would reply (THIS IS MY LAST ONE) with a lisp no less....but the next time he would come to the house I would still be drinking a bottle....and I would tell him the same thing again...well it became a joke and as I got older he would remind me of it..... Al was my favorite of all my fathers freinds....May God get you through this hard time and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
