Dear Barbara and family,
I knew Alberto when he lived at the Shrine. He and my husband
were chess players. I'm sure they played a few games together.
My husband Ed had Parkinson's and passed away two years ago.
Alberto used to eat breakfast with me in the dining room. He was
a very nice gentleman. I know he was very proud of his family.
Please accept my condolences. I know you will miss him as I miss
my Ed. God bless you all and keep you in his love.
Naidine Sanderlin at the shrine.
