    Any man can be a father,
    But it’s different when he’s your Dad.
    He’s with you through thick and thin,
    The best friend you ever had.

    One is never really ready
    When it comes time to part
    But Dad will live forever
    As a sweet memory in your heart.

    May you think of him often,
    Remembering too,
    All the good times you shared
    And how much he loved each of you.

    Although you will miss him
    And mourn that he is gone,
    May this thought bring you peace
    In your heart he lives on.

    We are so sorry to see that Albert has passed. We wondered if he was not feeling well as we did not see him drive by hauling hay.

    He will be missed by us. What a great husband, father and friend.
