I"m always a day late and a dollar short;but this time I"m about 97 days late. I just googled Uncle Albie wanting to contact him with a lot of questions about the family. I found that I could not rely on my mom"s (Emmas) stories. I will kick myself for a long tiume for missing all the chances I had to get in touch with him.Please know that I am very sorry for your loss, Aunt Helen. I"m sorry that Melissa and I didn"t take our chances to be in touch over the years.
