Dear Doris and family, Al thought the world of Chester and you and we’re so proud to have known him. It was an Honor for him to have served in Vietnam with him and they spent many hours together sharing stories the last few years. If he was at Hy-Vee he would always make sure to come back to the pharmacy and say hello and get a hug! So very sorry for your loss and May God’s mercy shine upon you.
