Algernon was always smiling and fun to be around. I'll always remember this hero. Apr 25, 2008 <br> <hr color=silver> wayneSchatzle friend I still remember getting the news that Al had been killed. I was in VN in the mekong delta with the 9th Infantry division at the time and received the letter telling me of his passing. I still remember his old gray primer coupe "The Supercar" and many of the classes we had together at Princeton High. prayers for him and his loved ones that I am sure still miss him.
