To Terry and Donna and the rest of the family: May you all find comfort in knowing that at last your father is at peace. It is so difficult losing a parent and there will be days you will wish he were back here with you even though you know its better this way. “It is because of love that we grieve and also because of love that we are comforted.”. Please know that you are loved.

I have missed my dear friend for a long while now. Al is home with the Lord where he belongs. He was my neighbor for about 15 yrs & was more of a father figure than a friend. He spent all the holidays with my family & me while he lived next door, & he was one of the nicest persons I’ve even met. I was able to help him & take care of him at the beginning of his illness & see first hand how terrible this disease is. He deserves to be where he’s at now, in the arms of Christ our savior, happy & at peace. Love you Al..

Bendy had a smile that you could not forget. And a personality to match.
Telephone “people” are part of a special family. Not everyone got along with everyone but there was a respect that transcended everything.
Bendy was one of a kind. May he now be at peace.

Bendy had a smile that you could not forget. And a personality that matched!
Phone company “people” belonged to a special family like no other, we all didn’t like each other but there was a respect for everyone that made that family special.
Bendy was special! May peace now be his!
