I am so very sorry to hear of Albert’s passing. I was lucky enough to take care of him for a period of time at United Helpers. He was always so vibrant and happy, always had a smile on his face and loved to laugh. He will be missed very much. May he rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear of Albert’s passing and send my thoughts and prayers to his friends and family. Albert was a very special person for me growing up. Every Sunday we would meet each other at the Morristown United Methodist Church where I would be greeted with his warm smile and those twinkling eyes. He had such a pure heart, and I cannot think about him without a smile on my face. In my childhood Albert always exemplified the kindness and happiness of a gentle soul. To leave this world smiling at your memory as Albert has is to leave the world a better place. I hope that Albert’s memory will guide all of us to lead a gentle and peaceful life, full of lots of smiling and those wonderful twinkling eyes.
