PeterHeartfelt Condolences to the Johnston family and Carol Williams. Remember Al as an easy going good natured man that was very hospitable and easy to talk to. Al treated the kids to a fantastic fireworks display a number of years ago at my house overlooking the City, and we all had a great time.
