Last weekend, Albert celebrated his 78th birthday with his children, grandchildren, and a few of his closest friends. Two of his granddaughters presented a moving tribute to Albert and his lifelong friend Patricia, who was also in attendance. Patricia was beloved by Albert’s grandchildren; they were planning a big party for Patricia’s 80th birthday next year. The tribute of photos and videos set to Albert and Patricia’s favorite songs showed the striking differences in the challenges and successes Albert and Patricia had experienced over their years as friends.
