**** Uncle Al drove my mom to the hospital the evening I was born (Oct 1957). Many who attended my Uncle Dick's funeral a few days earlier had gotten sick with the flu - my mom and dad were both sick with it when contractions began. My father was so sick he could not drive.
Uncle Al was a fireman and knew how to drive quickly thru the city streets - my mother said it was a scary ride but he got her there safe and sound. He also told the admitting nurse if she didn't hurry and get my mom into a room, the baby would be born in the lobby. I was born within 15 minutes of arriving at the hospital.
He is the Uncle I remember most vividly - I can hear his voice still. He had a larger than life persona and doted on his nieces. I miss Uncle Al.
