I worked with Linda. My wife and I got to know her rather well. She was, and undoubtedly remains, a very nice lady. May God bless Linda, Albert, and their families. Dennis & Cheryl Trahan.
The news of Albert’s passing rests hard on our days and we extend condolences to Linda and Albert’s family in Canada.
My memories recall the first time I met Albert in grade school. He came to our village with his family from Holland after WW2 and could not speak very much English.Being the brilliant guy he was, soon changed all that.
As my Dad was Dutch he encouraged me to invite Albert to the house and we became close friends. He was older than me by several years. He join the Boy Scouts and became my patrol leader. We spent many trips into the “Wild Country” around our village. His love of airplanes and flying was early news about his future goals for his life.
Albert worked at the airport near us, along with a few of his old buddies.When he left for the States it was at a time when most of us did not dream beyond the next day. He wanted to fly and he set his goals high and it was only later in life when we got together for a short visit that we learn the kind of Warrior he was.
Albert was one of the men in my life who showed me what friendship was all about. That standards and care for doing things right were a matter for each individual to aspire to. His dedication and respect for the Navy and his adopted Country were prime motivators in his life and we honour him for it.
Our memories of Albert will live on and for us who remain and stand firmly upon the ground he will in our memories be forever flying “beyond the weight and bonds of earth”.
Thank you for allowing me to “love on you” Al and Linda. Every hug from you both is held dear to me. I will miss your smile Al…but I still have Linda to “love on”. May God continue to comfort you and the family. Love you.
Linda and Family,
Thinking of you with sympathy and sharing your sorrow in the loss of one who meant so much to you. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
