Please accept my condolences for the passing of your dear loved one. When someone we love dies, the heartache and grief can be great. I hope that you can be comforted knowing that Jehovah God cares for you and sees your pain. (1 Peter 5:7) "He is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort and relief during this grievous time, as you cherish the precious memories of Allan.

Al was part of Aerovox (AVX) when I joined the company in 1970. Work with him in many different ways, he was truly one of men that helped AVX achieve the position of world\'s best producer of Ceramic Capacitors. Will miss him and his humor at our quarterly lunch meetings. Go in peace.
