I am so sorry to hear/read about the passing of a great man.
Albert J. Ceja my own Uncle Albert. a.k.a. Tio Alberto
He came from a great generation where family was first and reaching out to others in there time of needs was part of what made him a Great Catholic Christian and compassionate Human Being. His kind of God fearing yet, Christian loving man are far and few in between. No many men can come out to do what he did. Served his country proudfully and had a wonderful career afterwards.
Yet, the love I saw that he had for his wife my Tia and his children and grandchildren is something that I marveled at. A man of character and strength that his family had experienced from my own Tio Alberto.
So to my cousins Alma, Albert Jr , Alfredo a.k.a. Wally along with my second cousins their children. I am very sorry that Uncle Albert had passed away. Yet, I am sure he had a fulfilling life and memories with you all for the time you had with him.
I had great memories of a man whom pushed me to be strong and better in character. And he was a great role model from which to learn of what it took to be a man.
