I met Alphonso while working for The May Institute. I saw him as just a coworker at first, but that quickly changed. He became my mentor, my brother, my friend, and my "Sarge." I looked up to him, and he knew that. He held my confidence in every way and never let me down (he refused to allow me to let my own self down, as well). He was my Minister of Facts and Love. When my mom got sick, he was right there for me, ensuring I held myself together. And, when I needed to break down, he held me then, as well. I truly do not know any man as great as Al. He set a standard that I will uphold. To his family, he spoke of you always and with great reverence and passion!! If I'm hurting this much, I can't imagine your pain. I pay my sincerest condolences to you ALL. My heart is with you. Although I mourn, I also smile, for I got the honor and privilege of his presence in my life. I promise I will continue to live in the light that he has shown me. I am forever grateful for such a gift. Peace be with you, "Sarge," eternally.
