My Dear Sweet Friend Albert... I am still reeling at the fact that you are no longer here with us. I am so grateful for our friendship and for all of the times that we spent together. Albert is one of the most kindest, caring people I have ever met. I will greatly miss our lengthy chats, patio luncheons, road trips, your laugh, and your amazing smile! You have a special place in my heart and will never be forgotten. Love and miss you lots Alberto! xoxo

Albert was a neighbor, a friend and a gentle man.
He looked after our house and mail when
we went away with our family on vacations.
You would always get a wave and a smile
when he saw you as he was driving away
or back in his car.
We look forward to seeing him again after
the resurrection that Jesus said will happen.
( John 6:40 )
Goodbye our friend until than.

Albert was a gregarious, fun loving guy. He enjoyed our group gatherings and often brought his hummus. He laughed and loved to dance. He was a gentle soul, very giving and generous. I am grateful that I can count him among my friends & he was a good neighbour. Adieu mon ami! Smiles on You!

My friend Albert was always so kind with words of appreciation when he himself was truly appreciated. Albert was always a kind hearted soul; he gave away so many smiles, laughter and kindred fun that was the pure essence of joy. I wish you well my friend on your next journey.

So many things I remember about Albert, but the thing that I treasure the most is that when he called me his brother and said he loved me like a brother, it really made me feel like he meant it. He would truly do anything for anybody. To me, his presence enhanced every party or get together he attended. So sad it been awhile since we got together. Gonna miss my buddy and brother. Love ya Albation..(my nickname for him)

To many that know my Uncle Albert...they will attest that he was a fun-loving, super generous, kind-hearted, and absolutely lived life by his terms. I have so many great memories... but the one thing that stands out for me was his commitment to my Aunt Janet and my Uncle Victor. I am proud to carry this commitment after his passing. I miss picking you up daily to go visit Victor and then Janet at Victoria and Parkwood. The long talks we had about the history of our family and where we came from. In the last few days, I have found myself... calling his phone number just to hear his voice... I miss You, Albert.....A LOT.
