There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.
It is with deepest regret that we inform you of the passing away of Mrs. Sally Alonzo, BK Al Alonzo’s wife. Sally passed away at 4:00 PM Sunday, December 29th, 2013 in California.
Al wanted us to let every Knight know that he appreciated all the prayers and was resolved to accept that God had called her home.
We continue to pray the Lord grant the Alonzo family strength and peace during this difficult time.
