Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Albert was my godson.
I will always remember him.
My heart aches for the loss of a young man who loved life and lived it to the fullest. He knew how to enjoy himself and he was kind to others. We will miss his big hearted love.
You were a brother, friend and uncle to this family. You were my best man at my wedding and I couldn’t have chosen a better man. We weren’t blood but we were family. You were a selfless friend with a massive personality and that’s what made you special. We loved the times we spent together, loved all the late night chats and the banter. Loved the laughs you always had with my kids. We will miss you my friend, rest in peace Al. Rest easy… We will always remember you and love you dearly. Our deepest condolences to Anne and the rest of the family during this sad time. All our love Brian, Patricia, Oliver and Sofia.

What a loss, to so many people who taught, hung out with, and cared deeply for Al!
As a Professor, I found him challenging at times, as a mom (I have 3 sons) I definitely think of Al as sort of being “one of my own” in a way. I’ve missed him since he graduated, and definitely I will be an outreach point to any of our “class”.
Farewell, Dear Friend.
I will miss you brother! I’m sorry I was not able to be there this week, I will find a church and light a candle for you on Thursday and I will remember you and keep you in my prayers until we meet again. You were loved and you will be missed by everyone who’s life you touched!!!
I am so sorry to hear of Al’s passing. I haven’t seen him in over twenty years, but his kindness is still fresh in my mind. He was always a gentleman. Sending my love and condolences.
Dear Anne, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son, Albert. I know , you must be broken hearted and filled with much sorrow and grief. I will remember you in my prayers and ask the Lord to give you His comfort, peace and strength.
So sorry Anne. He had such a big heart. I will miss our long conversations. Such fond memories of our time together. I’ll miss you my American brother. All my love and deepest sympathy
Albert will be remembered as a kind man with a huge heart, who loved life and enjoyed every minute. All of my prayers are with you. Rest in peace in a better world.
Dear Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. Al was good friend to me. We met in London and had lots of good times together. He was a really caring guy, looked out for everyone and had a good heart. He will be sadly missed.
