Please check out my Richard Alf Memorial Page on my Museum website; also have a Shel Memorial Page. Richard was a personal friend, and his biological death is not an end.

I have pictures on my web site from the Memorial service yesterday. From my home page, click on the ALF MEMORIAL button. Any friend of Richard’s who emails me their address will get a CD in the mail of all the good pictures I took (the ones on my web page are not print quality). I did not get a copy of the CD going around at the service conducted in San Diego, and hope someone will share that with me. Thanks to all.
