Many of you may remember Al and the Hayner family, although they re-located to West Monroe in 1987. Al was an absolutely selfless person and incredible real estate and business partner/associate to me for over 20 years along with being a dear friend, mentor, consultant, advisor, counsellor, client and quasi-father all rolled into one. His wit, advice, guidance and positive influence will be sorely missed by family, friends and his many business associates as well as others such as Than Vo and myself who were especially blessed and are eternally grateful to have had our life paths cross with Al as he assisted us over many decades and whose lives he so positively touched and forever changed.
