  10. Brittani Welch Lagasse says:

    My father Paul worked and was apart of the Hamel Brother Family for 28 years. Growing up my brothers and I would always stop in during the summer or after school to help out or go in to see our Dad. Al was always there to put a smile on our face. “How’s my little buddy?” he would always ask. His known phrase. Al and his wife Jeanie were also my parents neighbors at the summer camp in Alton. They would often invite us over to their camp. When I went off to bootcamp in 2008, Al and Jeanie would write me cards and sent a roll of stamps. He was such a kind and wonderful man. Just everyones comical grandfather. My father also expressed how truly genuine, kind, and generous Al was. Our family is deeply saddened by his passing and our hearts are with Jeanie and her family.

    Love,
    Al’s Little Buddies
