My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Albert at his passing. As a family friend and farm neighbor during my young, growing-up years in the 1950s, I have fond memories of Albert, whom my dad hired as a carpenter to help build a new shed on our farm. The first use of this new building would be to hold the wedding reception of my oldest sister, Rita. I was amazed at how Albert and a couple of helpers changed that pile of lumber into a building suitable for a wedding reception. That event became my inspiration, as a little boy, to become a lifelong carpenter and builder. About 20 years ago, I shared with Albert the admiration that I had for him as a young boy, and he just smiled that characteristic smile without saying anything, as I remember him as a quiet man. God bless you, Albert. May your place in heaven be great!

To Albert's Family It is with happiness that I remember Albert. At christmas times past, when I was a young boy in Luxemburg, Albert would load up a group of children in his Dodge van, and we would visit many homes in Luxemburg. Ring the door bell and sing christmas carols & share the spirit of christmas. I loved those times! Thank you Albert, may you rest in peace, with the Lord our God.

My thoughts are with Albert’s family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.
