Albert was a friend of my family for many years and as I grew into adulthood, he was a friend to me who taught me what it meant to live and practice one's compassion.
Albert dreamed of making Pixley a better, safer, healthier community; he encouraged others to believe in that possibility. He lifted the spirits and hopes of many for a better hometown, better opportunities, and a better future. The stories he told instilled a natural curiosity for people and places and the wonders of a beautiful world. He had a wonderful way of seeing potential and possibilities in everything, even in the youngest members of our community, even amongst those who seemed "lost." He shared every little bit of good luck and good fortune with those around him.
His dreams for the children of Pixley were vast. He dreamed of having Pixley youth graduate from high school, go on to four-year colleges, gain experiences out in the world, and return to these impoverished areas to put those skills to work. He wanted, more than anything, for these children and youth to become people of good hearts, conscious human beings, and people of great faith. He talked about the day a much-needed community center and non-profit organization would be established in Pixley.
Home will not be the same without him. He loved so many people and we hope he knew how much we loved him as well. He was an angel of the best kind; he did good work on Earth.
