An Angel Pin for Al Magness

Virginia Kernaghan gave an Angel pin tie tack to her friend Al Magness. Al is a special "Angel" in her life.

Al Magness
by Virginia Hollis Kernaghan

AlMagness.jpgAl was my student in 8th grade speech and drama class...He introduced me to the comedy of Bill Cosby by using some of Cosby's humor in speeches he did in class. Later on, I taught Humorous Interpretation to my other students by presenting the recordings of Cosby. When Cosby came to Houston, I took groups of students to see him in person where he autographed my record jackets...

Al is a true gentleman, who invited my husband and me to come to his Ordination service when he decided to become a minister. Al is a cousin to my sister-in-law, but I feel that I know him better than she does since he and I have been friends so long. He frequently sends e-mail including pictures because he knows I love pictures, and visits when he is in town from Austin. While he was in high school, he worked in our Ballot Room at Tournaments we sponsored, and even after he went away to A and M University he came back to man the Ballot Room at Tournaments, and even went with us out of town to work in the Ballot Rooms. He is an organized person who loves helping other people. He has even promised to officiate at my funeral if and when... He is a true friend whom I can count on. He is dependable, trustworthy and a great person to know. Al is my angel.
