You have my sincere, heartfelt condolences on the sudden passing of our brother Albert. You are in my thoughts and prayers always, and even more now at this very difficult time. I may not visit or call often. Certainly not nearly enough, but I want you to know that I love every one of you. I will forever claim you the Walker family as my very own. We all loved Albert very much. He will always be remembered for his laid-back manner. I will smile every time I think of him. His style was unmatchable. He was always dressed to impress and impress he did. With his dignified and dapper appearance. He loved his hats and clothes, and he knew exactly how to sport them. I will remember his handsome smile. His distinguished Walker brother look, salt and pepper colored beard turned white just like the other Walker men.
We are all going to miss Albert. Rest with God our brother.
I would encourage you my family to look to the Lord, the maker of Heaven and Earth. Call upon his name. God is our refuge and strength; he is a very present help in our time of need. Psalm 46:1
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6&7
I love you dearly family, you are in my continued prayers,
Your sister, Roberta Bowra McHenry
