  1. It was my pleasure to meet Brother Albert when I went to work for TxDOT. He was a great man of God and a sincere friend. To this day, I have fond memories of our conversations…..and I’ve heard so much the debate over Ford/Chevrolet, which is the best. This makes me smile as he was so funny about bring a Ford man. Mrs. Helen and all the children, grands, greats, and others, your lives are forever changed. Brother Albert will be missed! Praise God, those of us that know Jesus will see him again some day!

  2. Mary,
    I did not personally know your dad, but asking for our Heavenly Father to grant you and your family peace in the days ahead.

  3. Let me say it was my pleasure to have known this man for several years, always kind, and considerate to ever he came in contact with. He lived the phrase (treat everybody like you want to be treated). To all his family my sympathy.
