Albert was my great-grandfather, and I last had to the opportunity to see him a few years back around this time. He was a very proud man who was even prouder to share his time and experiences with a grateful grandson. I will always remember those moments, and pray for him and his family at this time. May he find peace and rest.

Albert was my great-grandfather, great-great grandfather to my children Raquel and River of Dallas, TX. One of my favorite childhood memories, probably 1995 or so, was of him and me playing with his original Erector Set and Nana in the kitchen making shoefly pie. It was a rainy day. I loved their house and his collection of classic beer cans. He had a great laugh and was always warm and kind to me. I will always remember our time together and hope to live as fulfilling a life as his. The success of my family can be directly attributed to the support he provided his son Jeff who in turn has passed the kindness Albert possessed to us. His legacy will live on with the Comptons down in Texas.-Sean Compton and Family, March 2020
