In Memorance of Uncle Al

Last Saturday my Uncle Al passed away after a year battle with cancer. He will be greatly missed. All biases aside Al Uglow was one of the smartest, kindest, and generous people I have met. When I first moved to San Diego my Uncle Al and Aunt Joanie spent some time visiting. Many of the sights I saw in San Diego for the first time I saw shared with them. Favorites such as Balboa park and La Jolla Cove. My daily run takes me through the La Jolla cove. I never pass through without seeing Al's face and hearing his voice recalling the story of his first visit to La Jolla years prior. Al had commented to a local that "It was a nice little town" and the local replied with a smile "Yeah don't tell anyone." Al chuckled upon his return visit. He didn't tell but somebody sure did.

We'll miss you Uncle Al. Thanks for sharing your wisdom, friendship, and cheer.

P.S. You've given me some great one liners to quote.
