  1. I am so sorry to hear about Al. I enjoyed working with him at Alcan/Novelis over the years and after he retired. He was an inspiration with the way he would not let his health issues keep him down in recent years. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend visiting hours, as I am out of town on Saturday.
    Al, rest well, my friend.
