I am very sorry for your loss. Jesus said; "Marvel not at this: For the hour is coming in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice; And shall come forth..." (John 5:28-29) My prayers are with you that the resurrection hope will comfort you. May precious memories also help ease your sorrow.

Evelyn and Family,

We were very saddened to hear of Uncle Albert's passing.

He was always a kind and gentle man and we have many fond memories of him and we always enjoyed his company.

He will be missed by all that knew him. Please know our thoughts are with you during this time of sadness.

Albert would always have something positive and humorous to lighten the day and that is how I will remember him.

Chris Mink & Family
