Albert had a genius for goodness. He was a gentle man and always a gentleman. My deepest sympathy to the Brown children for the loss of their loving and talented father. I'll never forget the beautiful hair updo he did for me for my wedding a long time ago! Rest in peace, dear Albert.
-Kathleen Mulvihill, New Orleans.
