    Al,
    Thanks for the many talks. Aside from the daily jokes and stories, you really kept my spirits high during my most difficult deployment. Your big brother approach was always welcomed and when you said “I got this” there was no doubt you was going to handle whatever it was. Thanks again for always being there whenever someone needed a ear to listen or vent to, a hug just because, or when the truth just needed to be told without sugar coating it. You meant a lot to everyone you’ve befriended, you will be missed…

    To the Reed family, Tracy and the girls. I can only give you my condolences. This is just a shock to me. Al and I were deployed many times together and shared many stories while at McGuire, I tried to reach out to him because I live in Litchfield Park but couldn’t connect. I always thought fate would bring us back together in the future or we would meet up at some gathering in Phoenix. We shred a lot during those times. My phone number is 480-280-0296

    Our sincerest condolences to the Reed family. I worked alongside Al for a few years at McGuire. At times, our job was very demanding, but Al always kept his cool. I remember all of the good times we had when we were in the same office together. Al truly made the workday less stressful and more enjoyable. He was always in a good mood and someone you could lean on for help. It saddens me to hear that he has passed on, but he will always be remembered.
