"I was saddened when I read of Al's passing today. I have many Happy Memories of Al as a kid growing up in Butner. Haven't seen him in many years but still puts a smile on my face to think of how he used to pick on us Bowman girls, always joking and making us laugh. My heart aches for each of his family members. Stand strong and hold tight to each other. God Bless! Love and Hugs!"
"Through well over 35 years, I have known Al. Although in and out quickly, in my business, over the years, doing his job in sales, Al always had a minute to say a kind word to me, personally, and most times ask about me when I was not there. He obviously saw many things in the retail business, good and bad, and never had a bad comment about any of the thousands of clients He had. He was a valued asset to his employer, and to his competition, never a negative comment, and an asset and good friend to his customers. He will be missed by me and many others in the trade. Rest in peace, Buddy."
