Joseph Joe Duece Dwayne Albert

February 1, 1991June 30, 2013

Joseph was born in Houston, Texas in 1991 weighing 10 pounds and was 21 inches long. A giant in spirit and character right from the start - he was always a happy baby and grew into a loving, compassionate person. Kind and generous to a fault with a wonderful way with words. An avid reader and philosopher with "Gold" for everyone he knew. He adored his friends and never forgot anyone's name or face. He was hard working and strong willed yet compassionate, wise and gentle.

Having fulfilled his purpose for this life Joseph Dwayne Albert went on to glory and Heavenly Father on June 30th, 2013.

We are all saddened by his transition yet can't help grinning through our tears as we remember him fondly and all the words of wisdom he shared so freely with us...He is a truly miraculous soul who is cherished, admired and adored. His loved ones welcome you to celebrate a life that was a blessing to all no matter their station, creed or color.

"Knowledge is priceless. Don't throw pearls before swine. It's hard not to for me to do that though because it's like my brother, Anthony Johnson, says, "Put God First then your self and it'll work out." Love should be equal if they don't give the same back don't get taken advantage of. You see me, but do you hear me? I can feel you, but do you feel me?? If you understand you're on your way." - Joseph Dwayne Albert, May 16th, 2013

Hey Joe. So it's been 3 years, but you are never forgotten. Thinking about you today. "One Day" that's what you said to me one of the last times we spoke. We will see each other again. Gone but NEVER forgot.

I'm Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colourful leaves when Autumn's around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
You can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm every place!
