    Regardless of who they were, it’s awful to see someone pass before their time.

    The world is a colder and darker place without Albert. In his brief 41 years, touched the lives of many as a source of inspiration, excitement, hope, and joy that will be deeply missed.
    I will miss my dear friend immeasurably…
