“you were too young to know better, decieved by a madman, you were only acting on orders, I hope all who knew you, remember you well, for all the good you did whilst you were here. RIP. ” - Braeden

“Well, you were easily the best looking and hunkiest person in all of Jonestown. What a waste. God bless. ” - Paul V

“I went to high school with Al class of 1972. I was not on the social level of Al but did take some guff from him for being a nerd. I remember how stunned I was when I heard about his death in Jonestown. It was a tragedy for such a young man to die at the hands of a fanatic. When the anniversary comes around I always think of Al, RIP. ” - Dan Young
