It was my best opportunity to be a secretary to Wally Albers. He was a wonderful manager who talked about his family often. Yes, he will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

We have lost a dear, dear friend, a golfing buddy, a dancing partner and everything in between. He will be sorely missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Wally's passing. He was wonderful and I will treasure my memories of of spending time with him as a child and as an adult at The Fortress in Frankenmuth. He was a terrific godfather he will always be a part of me.

We will miss Wally at our "Buddy's" lucheons - here's a picture from 2007 - we have lost 3 of our work friends now from this group. Wally was one of our favorites - and will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.
