Dear Ullman Family,
Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting Albert I have heard so many wonderful stories about him from my friend Ellen Ullman. It has been a true honor to know the Ullman's of Boca Raton and want to share my deep felt sympathy to Harriet for her loss. You have a beautiful family and may you draw strength from them always.

Growing up in Savannah and specifically directly across the street from the Ullmans, "Uncle Albert" was always someone who always had a big smile on his face. He was always so positive and just loved all of the neighborhood kids. It was truly a great honor and privilege to know him especially in my formitive years. He will be missed.

Mrs. Ullman, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I will always have fond memories of going to the store in Ridgeland and the fun times in school with Steven. May God bless you and yours.

(Uncle) Albert Ullman graciously & selflessly jumped in feet first & filled an immense void in my youth when my father (Albert's brother David Ullman) prematurely passed away. Nothing will ever change or take away my fond memories of Albert. It is rare, almost unheard of today, to know one who gave so much & took so little.

Albert helped bridge civil & family connections way more than anyone could have anticipated, and surprisingly did so across generations.

My sincerest sympathy goes to my Aunt Harriet; & Susan & Jeffry Ullman.
