There were also other necessities, such as an abundance of stationary. Nick looked thrilled to be reunited with his family, as it was a big move away from home. 

The youngest of Al’s three children is “somewhere on the (autism) spectrum and maybe obsessive-compulsive,” the TV star previously told Guideposts magazine.

At the time Al added: “But those labels can be frustrating; they don’t begin to describe who Nick really is.”

Al’s son has grown up so fast 

Al doesn’t deny it can sometimes be hard but that he is continuously admiring his youngest, right till the day they dropped him off the previous week for his own life to begin.

“Do I get frustrated with my son sometimes? You bet,” Al added. “But then I remember my dad, how understanding he was. And Deborah reminds me that I have to show my son not only that I love him but that I like him as well. More than that, I admire him.”
