Hey Albert,

Just wanted to say thanks for watching over me (thank mom & dad too) because lets face it if you werent I could be dead now since something made me not go as soon as the light changed to green and that car would have hit me because it went right through the red light. So again thank you. It is nice knowing that you are watching over me too.

Love always, your sister-in-law Elaine

Hey Albert, what can I say,(you know I am not good with words - that was Theresa's department), we all miss you very much and I think about you alot. I am not going to tell you how Chris & Staci are because I know that you are watching over them so you know what terrific kids they are. As for our Frankie,what can I say he is my pride & joy. Not only is he the cutest kid, but also very smart for his age. I am sure that you are also looking out for him too. Did want to let you know that Rusty
Rustmeyer (aka Buddy Boy, Fat cat) is doing good. Theresa takes such good care of him. Miss you, your sister-in-law Elaine

Hi Hon,What can I say but, it has been 2 years, how time goes. I look back on how I felt a year ago and can only say that I miss you now more then ever. It hurts Staci, Chris and I so much that you r not with us, I know how much they miss their dad. Frankie is more a joy then I ever thought possible,I try each and every moment when I am with him to love him for the both of us, kiss, hug and make him laugh for you as well. I believe that you see him and you are always there watching him with me, sharing those moments. I know you are keeping a watchful eye on Chris and Staci as well, they r such wonderful kids, we really did a great job with them.Take care and pray for us. I love you so very much.........Always,Me

This message is to my dearest grandpa. Its been over a year since I last spoke to you, I can't believe how fast time goes by. I think about you so much and I regret not calling you up more often. When I do think of you, tears just start falling and I find myself really wishing you were here. But I know you are watching over all of us, and I can still feel your presence. Grandpa, I love you, I miss you and I can't wait to see you again. You are a great person and we have many memories together that I can reflect upon, and they make me smile. Love you grandpa!!!

I think of my father everyday & I will always miss him. I will always regret not spending more time with him & saying to myself "I'll call him tomorrow", which I always did, this time it was just too late. I believe God will bring me to my father one day & I will see him again, get one of his big hugs & we will catch up. He was truly a wonderful man & the best father. I miss him most because he was my friend, he would be the one I could turn to when I was having a hard time or just needed to talk. I have only told this to Alfredo, know I'll tell you. The moment I found out my father was gone, a part of me left my heart. I believe my mother & father are a part of who I am. And I know I will never be same person because my Dad is gone. As hard as it is to think my father never got to see Francisco I know my father loved him already & I have faith that my father has seen him. I look at Francisco & I see my father. Till next time, I love you Dad!

Hey Hon, Has a year gone by already, seems like it all just happened; they say in time its' suppose to be easier but as it was yesterday it is today. I miss you so much and carry you in my heart. I try and have faith that you r here, with me, sharing the joy and love that is Frankie. He is just amazing you would have been so happy with him, your baby's baby. Our kids r ok but they miss u and you are always with us, when we r together. Rusty is doing great both he and Sasha r buds' now, so things r cool with him. So for now Hon, know that I love you and miss u 4 ever. Always.

This is the day - one year ago - that I got the LAST call I would have ever gotten from my Dad. Had I known, I might have answered, albeit it 4 am in the morning...

Regardless of this, seeing everyone at the cemetary and seeing how loved my Dad was and still is, brings joy to ones heart.

He is missed and forever will I long to have one of his great big hugs - I LOVED MY DAD very much!

Although I didn't know Albert as well as other family members, he was always happy to see me and very interested in how my family was doing.
Albert was a kind man and I truly believe kind and caring people will be taken care of.
God bless you Albert.

First of all I'd like to once again extend my condolenses to anyone whose lives were touched by 'Cousin Albert', especially to everyone in his immediate family. Although he was about 10 years older than I am, Al was the kind of cousin that always treated me with a sincerity and respect that I will never forget, regardless of our age difference. I believe my life has been enriched by his kindness. Even though we didn't get to see each other much, I'll miss 'Cousin Albert'.

My Beautiful, Wonderful Cousin Albert Aleman Will be Very MISSED Dearly. God was with Him at All Times. He wanted to come over to visit us at our home, and He did. He wanted to be able to see a concert of Dave Brubeck on His Birthday, and he did. He wanted to do many things and God Granted His Every Wish! Albert Was/Is The Most Wonderful Person Anyone would want to have met. He was a WONDERFUL Dad, How he spoke to me, his cousin(Benita)Of His Beautiful Children All 3 of His Children, and He also Talked with so much Love about His Loving GrandChildren. He Love ALL of His Brothers, and ALL of His Sisters. He Adored His Loving Mother ESTHER, and He Did Love His Father Very Much as well. He Was Also a Very, Very Loving Cousin. Albert& I Were Very, Very Close Since We were Children. I Had the Pleasure of Growing Up with Him in the same house. The Last 7 year's He Came Back Into Our Lives. My Husband(Doug) & I. Albert Had Grown Very Close to My Husband Doug. They Became Very Good Buddies. Albert NEVER Had Anything Bad to say about ANYONE. He Had a Lot of Friend's and Family Who Loved Him Dearly. He Was Also a Great Nephew. He ALWAY'S WENT TO EVERYONE'S Funeral, Or Everyone's Weddings. He Was Loved By MANY, and He WILL Be MISSED By MANY. But I Know God NEEDED Him. Because Personaly I Feel He WAS REALLY AN ANGEL WALKING ON THIS EARTH, So GOD NEEDED HIM IN HEAVEN. My BEAUTIFUL Cousin ALBERT WILL ALWAY'S BE IN MY HEART, Until That Day When I'll See Him Again! I LOVE YOU, AL. Your Cousin Benita. 6/27/2007 P.S. I Know Albert is Keeping an Eye on His Very Loving Cat!

Do you remeber what day today is Albert, I know you do; you, me, and St. Ann's. How handsome you looked in your white tux. We were so young, so in love, soulmates the two of us. Life gave us 31 years as husband and wife we had our joys as well as sadness. Life gave us so much and even though we found later in life we worked better living apart, I know and you know that not matter what, we were there for one another always. 31 years ago today, we vowed in front of God, family and friends to love one another until death do us part, I have always loved you and always will, it is a vow I believe we kept. Didn't mean we had to live together? Forever, soulmates we are,reunited someday for eternity we will be.

This is Chris Aleman. After learning that my Dad passed away - it has and is still taking my mind and body to a great level of SHOCK! To a point where I still can't believe I utter the words, "My Dad passed away". But, for those of you that were at Church knows how much my Dad meant to me and how many memories he left me and my family with.

Also, it's odd but the last time we spoke there was this short pause which now seems to be the length of eternity - and that's the last time I spoke to my Dad, ending w/ "I love you very much Dad".

Thanks for everyone of your words of encouragement and it truly means alot to us.

My Cousin Albert:
What a sweet man, I will miss him dearly. We will all miss him dearly, he brought so much happiness to all he knew. He was a great son,father,grandfather,brother,friend and to me a great cousin. I'm glad I had the opportunity of being with him a few months ago and sitting down and talking and spending time with him, little had I known it would be the last time. I will cherise these great memories of my cousin forever. I know he's with the angels.

There's a lot of people that are really going to miss Al. He never forgot a name or a face and a true gentleman in every way. It was always great seeing him and taking a few minutes to chat. He always had time for you. God Speed my friend.

Therese,Staci & Chris,
We so sorry for your loss. I had just told my Husband Ben, how great Al looked at Staci's Baby Shower and then this happened. We were astonished to hear the sad news.
May God have your Loved One in his Kingdom and may he soften the pain
and comfort you all during this difficult time.
