My deepest condolences to you, Pat, and Alberto's sisters, children and grandchildren. The dignified and solemn service was a fine tribute to a man of dignity. Alberto stood up for our country, and he stood up for justice. He was a respected pillar of every organization of which he was a member. For many years we worshiped at Spesutia Church, St. George's in Perryman, including at his mother's final service and my father's. After 50 years together, may God grant you peace, Pat, and Alberto glory.

A good friend, a patriot, and an Alpha Brother to name a few. Brother was a person you always wanted near when there was a need for conflict resolution. Always quiet and unassuming, until the quorum needed resolution, then he would speak and all present would listen, end of conflict. We would from time to time swap stories on our travel and family. He always had positive remarks about both. In the latter years, we did not see each other, but he was always in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace Dear Brother, as your journey continues......Bro. Jimmy Clark 3BA73/IAL
