I am very sorry about Uncle Albert's passing. Keep in mind the wonderful memories you made together and that great smile he shared with everyone. One memory I have is when dances were held in the Parish hall in Farrellton and Alexis and I would bet on who Uncle Albert would waltz with him. Guess what, it was me and this is one of the many memories that will stay with me forever. RIP Uncle Albert
