Cynt and I spoke today, we talked about memories that we shared with you and you made us laugh again. I reminded her about one of your motorcycle club dance we attended, they had a Micheal Jackson impersonator that was not very good. The reactions from some of the members were hilarious. Laughter is the way we celebrated you today ❤. You will be missed.

Having a brother means that when you need a friend you never have to look further than your own family. When there's someone in your life who's made a difference, whose loyalty and friendship have been yours as long as you can remember, who's shared good times and trying times and memories by the heartful with you, it's a gift you really cherish. I'm going to miss
our conversations and trips we took to Atlanta.❤

Albert Delahoussaye will always be for me another big Brother. He would always do adventurous things like practicing hunting next door with his Bow and Arrow. He is the Real Deal. He always had good HEART. Thank you my Brother. Rest of Peace. Blessings and love to all the family James

To my family,
My memories of Albert include him laughing or wearing a big grin whenever we met; always a jokester.
May he Rest In Peace!
I can just imagine the heavenly family reunion on that day he left us. It is a comfort to know WE WILL MEET AGAIN.
To Joycelyn, Yvonne and Cynthia, I hold on to all the good memories of him and will miss him. Be encouraged.

May God bless and keep you. May God’s face shine on you. May God be kind to you and give you peace. Albert will be missed. He helped me out many times while I lived there and I always looked forward to seeing him at NOMTOC after I moved. He is now reunited with Auntie Vi.
