Our dear Uncle Albert...
One of the most unique individuals I have known. Always good for a laugh, a joke, a smile. And that smile... he was one of those people who smiled with his eyes. I will never forget that!
He loved to have a good time! Uncle Albert was probably the most hospitable person I've known, always offering his home for a place to stay or a gathering. You were always very well taken-care of there. He never missed an event... he was there for you for every celebration, every success, every joy, every mournful event... whatever life brought.
He was a loyal son, brother, and friend... a proud father, and doting grandfather... an American patriot.
He eulogized his big brother just over a year ago, saying at the end, "Erma Bombeck said that, 'When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'" He went on to say, "You did use everything God gave you, now He gives you peace and life eternal." "You'll finally be with our Mom and Dad. Tell them we said thanks for their giving you to us." Uncle Albert, we thank them also for giving YOU to us. I know that you, Grandpap, and Uncle Alex are playing a round of golf, having a beer, and Grandma's getting some chicken soup ready for you guys. We love you and will miss you so much.
Coast Guard Hymn
Eternal Father, Lord of Hosts
Watch o'er the ones who guard our coasts
Protect them from the raging seas
And give them light and life and peace.
Grant them from thy great throne above
The shield and shelter of thy love.
Lord, guard and guide the ones who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky
Be with them always in the air,
In darken storms or sunlight fair,
Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air!
Grant to them Your eternal peace, Oh Lord,
For they have followed your commandment,
That No Greater Love has he, who would give up his life for another.
All our love,
Melissa, Adam, Olivia, and Owen
