I want to send my condolences to the family and prayers for your healing in this time. I got to know Al from the NCCA knife shows he attended, and I talked with him often there as we share in both being knifemakers. I know there are no words to ease the hurting you must all feel at this time, but I hope you can find some peace in the fact that he is in a most loving place now, surrounded by his loved ones who've crossed over before him. I share in your pain of Al's passing and he will be missed and remembered.
Love and prayers to you.

My sincere condolences to Mrs. Longworth and all the Longworth family. Al was a familiar face and had a warm smile for everyone he met at the NCCA knife shows. Al made many friends, I have one of his beautiful knives that I treasure. "When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange".

I met Al through our knife club and I always looked forward to seeing him and speaking with him. He was a genuinely nice guy and as a Navy vet myself, we had little more to talk about than just knives. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Fair winds and following seas.

So sorry to hear of Alan's passing. I'm a knife maker also and talked with Alan at all the N.C.C.A. shows we attended. He was truly a gentleman and a fine craftsman. He will be sorely missed at the shows.
