    Dear Gloria, Katherine and Andy;

    My deepest condolences for your loss. Al was great man who truly lived the Catholic faith in every way, as a man, husband and father. While Masses will be offered for the repose of his soul, I am convinced that there is a Saint Alan in heaven and I will be asking for his prayers and his intercession.

    Eternal rest grant until him O’ Lord and may perpetual light shine upon him;
    May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

    Love in Christ;

    Fr. Joe Brankatelli
