    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s tough enough when you lose a parent or whatever your relationship is in the family, but right before Christmas is especially tough. So I’m thinking about you.

    I had the pleasure of playing softball with Al for the last 15 years. He was an awesome pitcher and really taught me a lot about the game. Being one of only two women with the West Metro league, Al was very fair and kind to me. He often would throw me nice, fat, pitches! He called me shnuckiputzi. I was really hoping that was a term of endearment! I will really miss him. My sincere condolences.

    The earth is emptier without the great lion, Alan. I have been hearing his deep, happy voice in my head for over a week now. Alan was so much a part of our lives and our history, and I want you to know that our family loved him very much. I will never forget his joy at a good joke, the enjoyment he took at being teased, and the sound of his laugh. I will always remember Alan showing us slides of his beloved trips to Europe, eagerly sharing with us what he learned. I will always remember the kindness and compassion he showed us when life presented its adversities to us. Alan was a dear friend to all of us in the Croissant family, and though I can’t be with you in person on Monday and Tuesday, I am very much with you in spirit, Marian, Craig and Kevin.

    Sending you all my love and hugs. Wish I could be there with you.
