Blessings to the Hecht Family as they celebrate the special life and peaceful transition of Al Pap Hecht. He was a unique soul who filled so many roles in his family and was greatly loved by each and everyone. My son, Brian, enjoyed Pap’s sense of humor and the time they spent together. Our family appreciated his kindness and friendship. May love and healing surround everyone. Johnnye Patterson

Al taught the Adult Sunday School class at Jefferson United Presbyterian Church for many years. Needless to say, his faith was strong. In addition, he was a tremendous supporter of the causes of the Church. I thank Al for his friendship, he will be deeply missed at Jefferson Hills Presbyterian Church. My condolences go out to Linda and his children.

My condolences to the Family of Alan W. Hecht. As one who grew up in the presents of Alan I came to knew him to be a person with a good heart and a personality for enjoying life. I also know that his Uncle Dean knew and supported his good heart. It was only through Providence and the action of a good friend that I came to know to Alan’s passing. While we both live in Allegheny County the distance across two rivers separating South and North seem to make it feel the two are worlds apart. None the less Alan’s passing has left a void. May Alan, Rest in Peace And God’s Blessing upon Alan’s Family Charles and Janet Hecht Checht2002@aol.com
