Not sure what to say?

Mrs. Allbritton,
We are very sorry to hear about your loss. Barb and I will always remember the fun times at our farm in KY with Mr. Hibbert.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Joe L. Albritton. I worked for him in the Home Delivery Dept. of The old Washington Star. What a wonderful leader and man. He gave us hope when no one else could. He said trust me and I will never let you down. He took our Newspaper from a loss of 1 millon dollars a month. To breaking even, I will always be proud that he was my Boss. And the World will miss a wonderful Smart man. God bless you Joe and thanks so much!!! John Paul Kirk

Dear Barb and Robert,

I learned of Joe's passing from the program at the Kennedy Center. He and you enriched my life for which I am grateful. I know many that have and will continue to share this sentiment. I shall not forget him. I hope that you will remember him every time you hear the birds and beautiful music.

All my best,

Mitchell Strauss
