This Is A Tremendous Loss To The World Of Designers, The Community And To All Of The Lives He Touched: Blessings,
I was shocked to learn of Alfred's sudden passing. I had an opportunity to speak to him a few years ago when my daughter, who grew up on Lowell Rd, was planning her wedding. He was never shy about his roots no matter who he was dealing with or where.
Just an aside at last count there are over 45 members of my extended family who owe their lives to Dr. Sabia.
Dear Alfred, u are missed everyday, you are very special ,no one can forget your kidness, talent and so much love and fun that u brougth to anyone that came your way,
I have such wonderful memories of playing dress-up in the shop on Maverick St. when I was a little girl. When I grew up and was planning my wedding, you designed my wedding dress. It was a dream come true. I will cherish these memories forever and remember you always.
Alfred was inspiring, humble and sincerely interested in making the world a better place through his efforts. One of his personal works in progress was collaboration with the Dupuytren Foundation. This effort will continue in your memory, but Alfred, you are greatly missed.
