Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cramer family. Al was a very kind person, He will be missed. God Bless you Al.
To Al’s family and close friends,
It’s hard to believe Al has left us. Not only in selling the tavern but from here on earth. Al has been a friend to us and our parents for many years.
Al always had time to strike up a conversation with our retired dads when they stopped in the tavern, like he did with so many people.
He will be missed by us all. We’re just sorry he didn’t get to enjoy a little more time on earth but that wasn’t in God’s plan. I am sure he is enjoying his eternal life without having any pain and suffering of his sickness.
With our sympathy
Ron and Jeanette

Dear Cramer Family;
Russ and I and our children, Zach, Holly, Kyle, Matt, Meredith, and Peter want to extend our deepest sympathy to all of you in your time of loss of Al. We have enjoyed his ability to have a new joke for us everytime we visited “The Tavern” for dinner. Russ and Zach have enjoyed every hunting story that Al would share. Peter and Meredith are already complaining that their favorite pool table is gone. Al’s generosity to the community, by donations, to little league, church and gun raffles and other civic organizations that walked through the door will
not be forgotten. He will be missed by The Keller’s. Much sympathy to you all.
Alan and I have been lifetime friends,school classmates and neighbors. I will miss him and I extend my sympathy to his family.
