    Far too soon to say goodbye. It seems like I knew the Kruchowski family all of my life. Many memories. Maple Ridge has lost a true community member. My heart goes out to all of the family and the children. He has gone too soon. Loosing a father is heartbreaking.

    To the family…. Like me , and many of his friends Al has left us with a bushel of good memories….Garibaldi and beyond…. Hold those memories close and allow them to help comfort you now. RIP Al – You will be missed !

  11. I am sorry about Al, he will be missed. We sold his shims and ridge for 20 years. He was a great guy and a ton of fun. You would have thought he had another 20 years in him. I remember one time when Hugh and I went to check out his ridge. He just hopped on top of a pallet so quick and he jumped off. I think I would have sprained my ankle doing that. I will miss him.

  12. Kelly Clark :
