Albert’s light will be with me always. He remained a true family friend for over 40 years with his heart of gold and his always available ear. His bright smile and charming laugh went a long way to making me feel like everything would be ok. We are so very fortunate to have been blessed with love and friendship. His kind ways will never be forgotten. We will miss you dearly Albert. Our loving thoughts go out to Brenda and their wonderful children, grandchildren, siblings and friends. Our world is all the better because of him. JPM
