    Honey, I miss you so much! You are missed by lots of people because that is the kind of person
    You were. You loved to see people and entertain them with your tons of stories and jokes.
    I am so thankful that we had 30 wonderful years together.
    I love you and always will.
    Til we meet again,
    Donna

    Mom and Pioli Family-
    Al leaves an amazing legacy through all of you. As I talked about your husband and Father this week at work, I talked of all the stories he used to tell. His stories had people in stiches. His memory will live on. Al will be listening and watching to know who will take up his torch to carry on the stories he was so fond of telling.

    My favorite was about Petey:

    This is the story about a poor little snake named “Petey.”

    Petey was a snake only so big. Petey lived in a pit with
    his mother. One day Petey was hissing in the pit when his mother
    said: ‘Petey, don’t hiss in the pit, go outside the pit to hiss.”
    So Petey went outside of the pit to hiss.

    Petey was hissing all around when he finally leaned over and
    hissed in the pit. Petey’s mother heard Petey hissing in the pit
    and said: “Petey, if you must hiss in a pit, go over to Mrs.
    Pott’s pit to hiss in her pit. Petey went over to Mrs. Pott’s
    pit to hiss in her pit, but Mrs. Pott was not at home, so he
    hissed in her pit anyway. While Petey was hissing in Mrs. Pott’s
    pit, Mrs. Pott came home and found Petey hissing in her pit. She
    said: “Petey, if you must hiss in a pit, don’t hiss in my pit; go
    to your own pit and hiss.”

    This made Petey very sad, and he cried all the way home.
    When Petey got home, his mother saw him crying, and said: “Petey,
    what’s the matter?” Petey said: “I went over to Mrs. Pott’s to
    hiss in her pit, but Mrs. Pott was not at home, so I hissed in
    her pit anyway, Mrs. Pott came home and found me hissing in her
    pit and said: ‘Petey, if you must hiss in a pit, go to your own
    pit and hiss. Don’t hiss in my pit.'”

    This made Petey’s mother very angry, and she said: “Why that
    mean old lady. I knew Mrs. Pott when she didn’t have a pit to
    hiss in.”

    May your memories of Al bring you some comfort during this difficult time.
    Much Love-
    Carrie Luecke and Spencer Durham

    Dear Donna and all of the Pioli Children,
    Joe and I were fortunate to have seen Uncle Al just 5 days before his passing, and he was as always happy to have visitors, smiling and joking and looking good. I have enjoyed something I think Al was most proud of and that is his family, you are all so welcoming and kind. Debbie and I especially share a special friendship.
    I think the way you raise your children says a lot about a person, so that being said your Dad was one of a kind, great job Al , on 8 loving, caring, children.
    May you all find comfort in the lasting memories, and each other.
    Blessings to you all, Joe and Merilee
