He was the kindest heart warming man I knew,
He always had a smile on his face no matter what,
I will never forget his reaction when he saw his new beautiful car smashed up, His reaction was still a smile on his face, claim as can be.
I will miss you seeing and talking to you Mr. Finella you were a super great guy, the kind of guy I would be proud to call my father and friend
RIP my friend

Condolences to Albert's family. He was a gem of a man. If you had the pleasure of meeting and knowing him, you would certainly agree.

We know that you are in a better place, but the world will be different without you, Albert.

When my daughter learned about Albert's passing, she said between tears, "But he was my friend." RIP
