    Every time I see a picture of Al and his big wide smile come by, I still can't believe Al is not among us anymore. Even though I only got to know him a couple of years ago, his advice, positive outlook on life, and his words of wisdom I will carry with...  more

    When Drew and I decided to get married in 1995, we couldn't decide on who should officiate the wedding. We considered a rabbi, or a judge, but no on felt "right". One day I said to Drew, "I wish we could have someone like Al...  more

    This is Al with Tobias when we’d gone strawberry picking at Swanson Farm. I’d cut the photo out for reasons I don’t recall and took a picture of it on concrete, so it’s a bit confusing but the joy is evident.

    This photo was taken at my brother William’s wedding in Santa Cruz circa 1997. I love this picture of Al which catches his brilliant, often lopsided smile and twinkling eyes.

    Al was so generous and always showed up personally to support Access Institute and so many events for the non-profits he cared about. In 2017 he told me that he probably would not be up for coming to any more big events. Here he is pictured at our...  more

    This is a photo circa 1982 taken with my brother William and myself. Al was our 1st cousin once removed from my dad’s side of the family. I can’t remember where we took the picture but I’m sure that good food was involved too, as it so often was with Al!
