From the Board of Directors and staff of the Gulf Coast Power Boat Associaiton, Orange Beach, Alabama, our thoughts and prayers to Al's family and friends.

Having had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Copeland during a poker run with Gary Nichols several years ago and again speaking with him at the Destin OSS Worlds last year, I can say I have been in the company of greatness.

I know he is now in no pain and is smiling down upon us with those whom we have lost in days gone by.

Rest in Peace Big Al...

A true offshore legend in every sense of the word. A very sad day for offshore. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Copeland family and friends.
