Daddy, Grandpa

If a picture paints a thousand words what a story there would be to tell. Thankful we are to have them but the memories in our hearts and minds tell the real story We are forever grateful for those that paint the story for us of who you are. We will forever love you for the times spent with you and the lessons taught and learned. We know that where you are now has released you of all worldly pains and burdens. You are now free for eternity as I know your home going was a glorious event for you as well as us for we are assured in the Word "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". Even though our hearts are saddened, in time we will be okay and will look forward to the day when once again we will meet. Until that time keep us all under your watchful care. I received a wonderful message from a classmate of mine reminding me of this.

"Let go smile, nay, laugh out loud and smother yourself in the lessons taught and learned.

Someday when the time is right, realize you are always with us, guiding every step... if we listen... as we make our own paths forward."

We will not say goodbye to you but simply until that time when we see you again.

Until then you are in our hearts

With unimaginable love,

Danny, Kelly, Haley and Riley

Al was one of the best factory representatives that served the Napa family. He mentored many young salespeople including myself. I would not have been as successful as I have been without his guidance. I will always treasure the time we spent calling on customers and the example he set with his outstanding work ethic and wisdom. He will be missed but his legacy of playing it forward will be passed on by those he helped along the way. Thank you Al. Our deepest sympathy to Bonnie and his family.
