Our dearest Big Al died yesterday. His kidneys failed and he could fight no longer. We held him all night, knowing it was to be our last together in this place. He was stroked, held and whispered to until the very end, which came about 4:00 AM. We cried so hard it hurt for he was a wonderful, loving and noble piggy who brought much joy into our lives. We thought about where he was going, to a place that is warm and sunny with green alfalfa fields and all the dandelions he could ever want. He will meet Patches and all the other piggies there and frolic without cares. We miss him dearly and his loss will leave us with a hole, but we will try to fill it with his pictures and memories. We will see him again at the Bridge and then will never part again.
We love you Bigness.
Steve, Sue, all the kids Your wife Florinda and the rest of the piggies
