I was a student at Wilson Elementary when Albina came here from Italy. She did not speak English, so I asked my father to teach me some Italian so that I could welcome her. He taught me how to say " hello, how are you?" In Italian. I was so excited to try it the next day at school. I went up to get and gave it my best shot. Her eyes got real big and she started to ramble in Italian non-stop for five minutes! I was speechless, to say the least. She quickly adapted and learned the language. We were friends through junior high when my family moved away. Two years ago, we had a small reunion for girls who lived on the Heights and were school mates. That was the first time I saw her since junior high. I retold the story of how I tried to speak to her in Italian and we both had a good laugh. I remember her looking around the table at all the women seated there that day and saying, "We all look pretty good for our age!" My condolences to all of Albina's loved ones.

I was so sorry to hear about Albina. I first met her when her and Guy came to my first grade class because they couldn't speak English. What a thrill, someone from another country. They learned quickly and soon left our class. Through they years we would run into each other. She even tried to sell a piece of property I had. When I was in the hospital I saw her and she was visiting her mother. We went down so I could meet her and discussed mother daughter relationships. One story she shared was when her mother came to America. Her dad was here and so were Guy and herself. Well, Dad wanted to be like the other Americans, had the children all dressed up in good new clothes. Her mother got off the plane, I'm assuming she flew, saw Albina and burst out crying. Everyone thought she was so happy to see them. Wrong, she took Albina's face in her hands and said, "Your beautiful hair, what did you do?" Her dad wanting her to look like the other girls had cut her long hair. Her mother cried all over her new clothes. I don't know what she said when they got home, but I bet it was good. We had a great laugh over that. Her smile, it lit up an room, her hugs gave love and warmth, and the kind words she always had for everyone went a long way. She's with her mother now and those angels are really up to something. She'll always be with you and watching over you. She lived a good life and we were blessed to have her among us.

My family and I am so sorry to hear of your lose. I am sure Albina will be remembered by many. Please keep in mind that Jehovah God will remember as well, and his memory is perfect and can restore life again as he has promised us he will do John 5:28,29. We can also look forward to at that time never having to die again. Rev 21:3,4 I pray that we see that day soon. It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.
