Condolence & Memory Journal

Alfred was like a uncle to our family. He was always quick with a quip, generous with a hug, and shared his engaging laugh with everyone.

I had to the good fortune to enjoy rounds of golf with him and his brother Stanley, and they regaled us with stories of their youth. To be honest, a lot of the regaling was on Stanley's part, with Alfred playing the part of attorney and defense counsel. They had great fun pointing out that although we hit the ball farther than they did, it was always better to be in the fairway.....a lesson we did not learn for many years. True enough for life and golf.

I am sure that he has found his peace now, and he is reunited with his beloved Theresa. I envision him sneaking out the side gate of heaven to get in a quick nine before the sun goes down.

May he rest in peace.

We want to extend our sincere sympathy to the Trawczynski and Freeman families on the passing of Alfred. Special condolences to Deb. We pray that good memories will be a comfort in these difficult times. It was a privilege to share time with everyone on the special occasions that we visited on. The feeling of love and respect for "Poppa'" was so clear. May he rest in paradise. God bless and comfort all those who will miss him so much.
