What can I say about Uncle Al, Your Dad, and Companion. He was always full of life and mischievous with a tinkle in his eyes and larger than life. He loved everyone and everyone loved him. His love for sweets are legendary as is all the Fichera family. He loved playing cards and I enjoyed all the times I played with him and my dad, what a pair. I am truly sadden by his passing, but our memories of all our family’s gatherings, celebrations, love, laughter and good times, will always be in our heats and memories. I can’t even imagine what celebrations there will be heaven, but he will be with all our loved ones who have left this earth and will watch over us. God bless you Uncle Al. You will be Missed dearly . Our thoughts and prayers are with you Rose and Joe and Hallie Love , Rose Fichera Powley and Ross Powley
