Albert G Abram

I am sorry to say we missed Albert's obituary.  Gerry Riley actually found out that Albert died, when he was checking bounced emails on our website. We apologize for missing his obituary, but would like all to read the beautiful story of his life.  Oddly, we actually were talking about Albert, at one of the lunch meetings last month. RIP Albert
