I have many great memories of Albert and the time we spent together on the railroad. He was a good railroad man but more importantly a man who always made it known that he loved his wife and family. I will never forget him!

Mr Albert was a wonderful and loving man. And it was a pleasure for me to be a caregiver for him. I enjoyed the times when he talked about growing up. And being in the Army and telling me of the places he went and things that he did. He loved Miss Elaine and his family. I loved and took care of Mr Albert as if he was my own family. The Reeves Family and Friends are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.
