Uncle Albert was an amazing man, who lived a full and vibrant life. He always had a kind word and a loving hug for us as we were growing up, and I thought of him as my extra special grandparent. He will live in our hearts forever, and the world is a much better place for having had him in it for so long. We send our deepest condolences to the Polonsky's and McDonalds...all our love, Karen, Jon, Lauren and Sage
