Albert was one of life's 'nice guys', he always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. He was a Postman for nearly 20 years...l met him in 1986 when he first delivered my post. He was very friendly and we always had a chat but it took 7 years for Albert to convince me to go out with him, mainly because l knew he was abit of a 'ladies man' and l'd heard about his 'special deliveries' haha. We had our first date Saturday 27th Nov 1993, from then on we were both hooked on each other. We never lived together but from that first date until he died 13 years later, we saw each other almost everyday. Albert was 22 years older than l was and quite often when we were out, people would mistake us for father and daughter, which we both found very amusing. Because of the age difference Albert always knew that he would be the one to die first and we use to laugh and joke about it...l could never imagine it really happening. It was as if l thought he would live forever.

Then in 2005 my beloved grandson Brendon died aged 2 & half. Albert and l had spent many days and nights at the hospital with Brendon throughout his short life. Brendon lived with me so he saw Albert everyday and came to adore him just like l did. Albert was like a grandad to him. l remember one occasion when Albert was putting up a stairgate, Brendon wanted to help, so he held and passed the screws to Albert. When the job was finished and Brendon realized he could no longer get up the stairs, he fell out with Albert 'big time'!!. Brendon did'nt go near Albert for 6 weeks after that, it was so funny.

When Brendon died Albert was my rock. l went to pieces, he would come round everyday and find me in floods of tears, when we went out l would drink too much and cry even more but Albert was always there to hold and comfort me, even though he too was hurting inside. It was Albert who helped me to wash and dress Brendon after he died...it was Albert who carried the little white coffin. Without Albert l would never have got through those awful days, weeks and months.

The last time l saw Albert was the 9 May 2007. We were going out that evening. When he came round to pick me up, he said he needed to sit down for awhile. l knew straight away something was'nt right....he was always so lively and this was out of character. He mentioned a pain in his chest so l went to phone an ambulance but Albert was having none of it...he could be very stubborn at times and he insisted that he would be fine. After resting for an hour he said he felt much better. l suggested we stay in but he insisted on taking me out, so we went. He seemed much better while we were out but when he dropped me at home at the end of the evening, l was still worried so l asked him to stay the night at my house but he wanted to go home....the last thing he said as he left me that night was 'l'm going nowhere yet'....meaning he was'nt ready to die. He did'nt come round the following morning and l knew something was wrong. l went to his house and found him dead in his armchair, tv still on from the night before, empty glass by his side (he always liked a whiskey before bed). He'd had a massive heart attack sometime after midnight but he looked very peaceful in his chair, he did'nt appear to have suffered any pain or attempt to get out of his chair. He always said that when his time came, he wanted it to be quick and painless so l thank God he got his wish...and got to finish his whiskey, he'd be happy about that.

He's in heaven now with Brendon and their just waiting for the day when we will all be together again.
See you soon my darling....

You never said you were leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
A million times I needed you
A million times I cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly and in
Death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of me went with you
The day God took you home.
