Thanks for support during bereavement

To the editor:

The LaValley family would like to thank the following for their kind expressions of sympathy on our recent loss of Al LaValley.

Aldage was proud of his service as DPW highway foreman for 26 years, his time as a lieutenant in the Fire Department, as an auxiliary police officer for 43 years and World War II Marine veteran. We thank the Amesbury Police and Fire Departments and Honor Guards and DPW for helping to support the family during their time of need. To the Chapter No. 14 of the Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, VFW Honor Guard, Bagpiper, Bill Shute and the United States Marines for the fitting remembrance of such a remarkable man.

Father Michael Farrell of Holy Family Parish, your homily captured what Aldage endured through his life, especially being a two-time Purple Heart recipient. Never are we more aware of how much friends and family mean than at the time of bereavement. Thank you to those who took time to pay their respects, share a story or memory, as your words provided great comfort during this time.

The family of Al LaValley
