She was a neighbor who was always willing to help, especially once I left home, her and Jack kept watch over my mom and dad. I enjoyed seeing the photo album it brought back old times. Darryl, call me if you have time. 219-616-0292

She and Jack were great neighbors who always helped out whenever they were needed. They kept watch over my mom and dad after I left for the army. Darryl, give me a call if you have time. 219-616-0292

Grandma Albright was an icon full of Love,Thoughtfulness, Kindness and Laughter. What a better place this world would be if more people had these characteristics. Her presence in a room somehow made a gloomy day turn sunny. She always had a way to make someone laugh or smile. As large as this family is she never forgot who belonged to who and was always interested in how you and your family were doing. Her memory was amazing. Grandma Albright was a blessing and joy to know and we will miss her dearly. She has left an imprint on our hearts forever.
Our deepest sympathy to the family.
Love, Pat, Holly, Patrick, Brandon &

Grandma Albright was always such a joy to be around. No matter how long it would be since I saw her, she would always remember who I was. She'd always be interested in what you were doing and she had such a wonderful laugh.

It was truly a blessing to know Florence and her wonderful laughter. The time I spent with her at Wittenberg Village was a gift from God. She will be truly missed. My sincerest sympathies to her family and friends.
