I new Al and CLAIRE only about 15 years but in that short time I found I had met 2 of the best friends a person could ever have. Al would tell me about all the great times he had with his motorcycle friends and of his love for the tumbleweed motorcycle club. Good friends of ours Bob and Betty Ames got us to join the club and we met Al and Claire who made sure we felt welcome. My wife Betty and I grew to love them very much in that short time we new them and we will never forget the great times we shared with them. Goodbye Al and Claire you are in our hearts forever. Jim & Betty Slade

My condolences to the Mackinaw family and friends. Big Al and Claire were quite a couple. The Tumbleweeds MC has a great picture of them. It reminds us that our predecessors such as the Mackinaws, Moneghans and the Bullocks (my uncle and aunt)rode with the same love of bikes and friends as we do today.
