I worked with Al at Cal State University Hayward many many years ago and he actually gave me my first ghi. He made such a great impression as a man of dignity, that I never forgot him and all the stories he told me of himself and Bruce Lee. Through the years I have told my son's Jake and Anthony about him. This May, 2011 I actually reconnected with Al and visited him at his home with at his request, a Starbucks regular coffee. I will miss you
Al. May God Bless your heart, spirit and soul.
