Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Al was a good friend of my Dad and they worked together. He was a true Italian. Al's mother in law was Mrs. Jensen, I always referred to her as Grandma Jensen, who lived in a big white two story house just 3 houses from ours on South Palm in Ponca City. She also had two sons, Al and Paul who were chiropractors and their clinic was behind her home. She was from Denmark and a very Regal Lady. We used to play with her grandchildren. As a little girl, I thought her home was a mansion. She was very health conscience and would try to slip the kids vitamins in cookies or other sweets.
