This past year , I enjoyed Albert 's friendship at the Ga. Cancer Center. We both enjoyed reading and would find books for each other. Albert and I often talked about old timey stories. I will miss our talks and friendship. May God watch over his family at this time.

The family and friends, that AC left behind will miss him so much. I really enjoyed the years I worked with him. I will miss him coming by, and visiting me when he would come to Madison to get more books to read. I pray that God will wrap his mighty arms around the family, in the days ahead.
