A long-time Pittsburgh Raceway supporter and Keystone Raceway Park competitor, Charles "Al" Deibler, is experiencing serious health complications and is in VA Hospice Care in Pittsburgh, PA. Al has many friends at the racetrack and I am sure he would like to hear from them one more time. Please keep Al in your thoughts. Dominic Surace

From Al's niece:
The VA in Aspinwall is a beautiful facility and veterans are respected and appreciated. He knew us and talked a bit, but he is also a little confused. He receives breathing treatments four times daily and is being kept comfortable. He eats and drinks as he wishes.

Many thanks to you who have visited him. The address there is 1010 Delafield Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15215, if you'd like to send a card or visit. He is in Building 51/Community Living Center on the VA campus. Visiting hours are 8 a.m.--9 p.m., and he is in Room 113 on the 3A wing on third floor.

Please pray for Uncle Al's comfort and God's will. Please also share this with others who would like to know how he is.
