I was blessed to know Al and Esther at Kentwood Community Church. He served as an usher/greeter for many years, and also volunteered in our ministry for adults with special needs. He always had a big smile on his face and was happy to greet everyone he came into contact with.

We are so sorry for your loss. Alfred was a very nice man. He was my Mom's (Gerry Rickhoff Wolf's) cousin. Now he will be with his wife, Ester and his cousins in Heaven. May he rest in Peace.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Alfred. My Mom, Marian always enjoyed their visits with Elsie.

The name wouldn't let me put Susan Egebrecht Wilbur so I did it here. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I keep remembering all the funny stories Mom would tell of Al, Elsie and her...I think they are fortunate not to have cell phone to take selfies all the time back then!!
They all have had such a good life and that's what we have to remember. Take care. Love to you all.
