Dearest Mary June,
We just found out about Al's passing. We are so sorry. We have such fond memories with you two and hoped to have many more. I now realize why we hadn't heard back after the birthday emails we sent you and missed receiving your fabulous Christmas card last year. We feel terrible that we did not know until now. He will truly be missed. Such a wonderful guy. Will always think of him when the word "cluster" is used. Please know that our thoughts are with you. Take care of yourself. Sending tons of love and hugs. Stan & Leisa Stilwell
Dear Mary June,
We were surprised and saddened to hear the news about Dr. Alto. He was such a lively, fun, and present person it is difficult to accept that he is gone. Through this deep heartache, you must have many fun and pleasant memories of Alan that we hope you can draw on. With time I began to drink a cup of tea and remember pleasant memories of my Dad after he passed because we used to drink tea together. Ian said he saw Dr. Also for 40 years and he helped his back heal. Such a loss to the world. We hope that you can be sustained and supported in every way. We hold you in our hearts. Mary-Ann Owens and Ian Watson

Dear Mary June,
We are so sorry to hear of Dr. Alto's passing. Our sincerest condolences got out to you and your family during this time. I first met you and Al in 1977, and just typing that makes me wonder where did all the time go?
I will always remember the long chats Al and I would have about music during our visits. We definitely shared this passion, and Al's recounting of the various concerts he'd attended over the years was definitely one of the highlights of our music related discussions. That and the odd joke here and there, plus the many conversations we all had regarding our mutual love of travel. Al was always so witty, and had a great sense of humour. It was also evident to all that he loved you very much. Al played such an integral roll in all of our lives. He'll be in our hearts forever.
With love and hugs, Darren & Duska DeLorme.
Mary June, Tom and I were so saddened to learn of Al's passing. We have many wonderful memories of our get togethers when we lived in Calgary. You both are special friends who were always so generous with your time. Your caring ways were always evident to your many friends as well as your patients. You are in our hearts.
Tom and Beth McNeilly
Mary June, cannot believe Dr. Al is gone. I shall miss the chiropractic care he gave as well as our visits. May time help heal your sadness. If I can be of service, please let me know. I send you love!
Mary June, we were are so sorry to hear the loss of Al,
We so enjoyed the times we spent we you both,

Mary June, I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Al's passing. It still hasn't fully hit for me. I'm realizing now how large an impact he had on my life and I'll treasure all our memories dearly. Your energy and lust for life will be with me forever. Can't wait to see you once this is all over.
Dear Mary June
We are so shocked and saddened to hear of Alan’s passing. He was so full of life, so interested in the world and the people around him. The world is emptier without the twinkle in his eye, his quick wit and his wonderful warmth of spirit. When I think of Al I see him pausing slightly, inhaling a breath and then dropping some witty remark. We will miss you dear man.

Dear Mary June
My heart was broken to hear you lost your dear husband and friend. I remember you both for the many years I attended your office...and his father before him. Wishing you peace, knowing you were so completely loved
Matt and I were so sad to hear the news. Dr Alto was a wonderful chiropractor who helped so many people with his gentle yet effective treatments. He really cared about his patients as people, and he wanted everyone to have the blessing of good health. Our thoughts are with you Mary June.

Your Calgary “Williams” cousins are all thinking of you Mary now that you are experiencing the loss of your dear husband. What a trying time of life as it is without adjusting to this tragedy. Take good care of yourself and social distance (surrounded) by family and friends. We hope to see you in Liberty this summer, if the virus permits......Ellen Vickerman (Laurie, Greg and Cam)

After 35 years as a patient, getting to know the two of you and many of your life travels, I was very sorry to hear of Al's passing. My thoughts and condolences are with you at this time. Because of his abilities he kept this body in operational condition after many injuries for which I will be forever in his debt.
I was so very sad to hear about my cousin's death. He kept up the "Alto" tradition of music and dance and love of life! My wish for you Mary June is that you will find comfort in the wonderful memories of all that you shared. My virtual hugs to you during this hard time and prayers to keep you safe and healthy! Much love, Lyn (Alto) Donovan
PS They have one heck of a band up there now with Dads & Sons !!
Al was a joy to be around & his enthusiasm for life was infectious. He will be greatly missed by all who knew & loved him. Wishing Mary June my most sincere condolences & tons of hugs. Love you M,J.
Al was a part of our families life for 35 years, he was a caring man and helped us all many times. Our condolences Mary June

We are so very sad to hear of Al’s passing and our hearts break for you Mary June. Al was larger than life and we half expected him to live forever. We will always fondly remember him and all the fun times we had....usually music related. He will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with the family and we wish you strength and peace through this difficult time.
RIP Al....hope you’re there’s some rocking good music where you are and you’re dancing your butt off!
Ruth (aka Rootin Tootin) and Paul.
Alan’s enthusiasm and zest for life touched everyone he encountered. He will be greatly missed and will live on in our memories with great fondness and ‘fun-ness'. As the saying goes, “The greatest gift we can give to those who have left us is to live fully in their place”. Alan would expect this.
Virtual hugs and much love to Mary June and her family.
Judy and Doug
We are so sorry to hear of your loss Mary June... our thoughts and prayers are with you,

Sending my love and sympathy to Mary June at this difficult time. I will never forget his humour, his wit, his love of music (especially Gino Vanelli) and his empathetic soul. Both you and Al have meant so much to me over the years and I am heartbroken to hear that he is gone. Bless you sweet lady and know you are in my thoughts.
Deb and I are so sorry for your loss Mary June. Dr Al was the most upbeat, positive person we’ve ever known. Our shared interest in music and artists made us brothers from another mother for which I will forever remember. We will grieve the loss of Al and think fondly of him every time we hear a favourite song or partake in a double Crown Royal and Ginger. I loved Al the first time I met him in Scottsdale and will miss him forever. We’re heart broken for you Mary June and will be here for you going forward. RIP Dr Al. I hope that wherever you are the band is playing awesome tunes, your glass is full and you’re dancing your ass off.
