My thoughts are with you all at this time.
Uncle Albert was always a pleasure to see on my annual trips to NL and Sandy Lake. 'Hey, little buddy' was his constant greeting when I saw him. Always a smile and happy as happy can be. I will miss him.
My sincerest and heartfelt sympathies.

My condolences to everyone for your loss of uncle Albert. Uncle albert always made Tracy and I feel warm, and welcome every time we saw him. One of my last memories was speaking with him around last summer when Phyllis was with me and we called and uncle Albert, and he made the effort to speak with Phyllis, it is a memory I hold dear, along with the many others. Phyllis sends her condolences, and is going to dearly miss her brother whom she was very fond of. Bless each and everyone one of you. We will donate to Alzheimer Society NS, with much love Phyllis, Tracy, Wayne Aaryn and Norman. XO
