Johnny, Bernadette, Jannie, Dougie and family;
My heart again breaks for you all, Albert and I connected throughout the years and laughed and cried for the good and bad times in our lives, presend and past. He was a very special friend to me. He was nonjudgemental, understanding, very funny and so kind. The two things that really stand out to me is. . . . . he drove his truck on fumes, I believe he didn’t know where the gas station was and that he hated Charlie Brown.  He was such a kind heart.  My condolences to you all.
