I first met Albert in 1985. l had just moved into a new flat and he was the local postman. He always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye. Albert was abit of a ladies man and l'd heard about his 'special deliveries'...haha.
I was determined that l wouldn't fall for his charms...but he never gave up trying. And eventually, 7 years later, l agreed to go on a date with him, that was on 26 November 1992. From then on, we saw each other almost everyday. He was the best thing that ever happened to me, l loved him to bits, he was my life, my soulmate, my best friend.
Albert was wonderful, he was like a father to my 4 daughters, always there to help them in their hour of need. And he was like a grandfather to my beloved grandson Brendon.
Brendon had heart problems and spent over half his young life in hospital, and Albert, along with myself, spent many long hours, day and night with him.
Brendon adored Albert and vice versa. When Brendon was about 13mths old, l asked Albert if he would put a stair gate up for me. So Albert was there, fixing the stair gate and of course Brendon was so eager to help, not realizing it was his benefit. He sat on the stairs, holding the screws and passing them to Albert when he needed them, Brendon was loving it. When the job was finished and Brendon realized that he could no longer go up the stairs, he fell out with Albert, BIG TIME!! He wouldn't have anything to do with him, he shunned him completely, it was so funny at the time. It was 6 weeks before Brendon forgave Albert..haha.
When Brendon, my little Chucklebunny died, it was Albert who kept me going, he was there with me through all the worst times. He hepled me wash and dress Brendon's body at the hospital, he took care of all the funeral arrangements and even paid for most of his headstone. I can't even remember most of the funeral, l was in such a state, but l know Albert was there to hold me up and help me get through it. If l hadn't had Albert, l know l would not be here today, l would've followed my Chucklebunny.
About 18mths later, my world was devastated again. Albert died suddenly from a massive heart attack. l always knew that Albert would most likely go before me, he was 22 years older, but l still wasn't prepared for it. My only consolation, is knowing that he is with Brendon and they are both waiting for the day when we will all be together again.
I am convinced that God sent Albert to me, he knew l was going to need someone strong, dependable and loving. Albert was all of those and much more.
I knew Albert for 22 years, and 14 of those we spent together. They were the best and worst years of my life and l'm so proud to have lived through them with Albert.
I love, adore and miss you so much my darling Albert.
A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VISIT MY PRECIOUS ALBERT. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
