My condolences and prayers for Alfred's family and Mary & Liz. I grew up with Alfred, a couple of hay fields apart in Rich Patch, and spent many a summer playing softball or football with Alfred and Bert in the cow pastures. May God cover you with his mercy and comfort during these difficult times.
