Dear Albert,

I wonder if you can remember me from the class of 1980? You were such a good friend to me when I faced all the struggles of being away from home for the first time. You sang Rocky Top at my wedding-- a special memory that I will never forget. I was so sorry to hear about your wife's passing. My wish for you is whatever will bring you peace. Praying that you and your family will rest in the comfort of your precious memories.

Dear Albert,
I'm so sorry to hear of your wife's passing. The two of you often and generously shared the bounty from your garden with Dawn Gnesda and I. We were students at the college and were blessed to call you friend.
