To the family of Al Kleinmeyer: I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies at this difficult time. Whenever my husband (Michael) and I brought in a buck that he had shot during his past bow hunting seasons I am glad that we had the opportunity to meet and visit with your father. He was a talented, knowledgable man with such love for his family, and one of those pillars in our community. Your father will be sorely missed by all that knew him. I wish each of you peace and comfort. God Bless, Krista

I was probably Al's last customer. He was framing a poster for me the day before he went into the hospital. What is so remarkable is that he was worried if I would get it on time to deliver to a sick friend in the hospital. He asked Chris to follow up with me to make sure I knew that it was ready to go. That was just like Al - always friendly, and so caring about his customers and his business. I am so sorry for your loss.
