Dear Albert (Pelee), I miss your evening calls already. You are such a "Warrior". No matter how bad things appeared to be, you always had a positive attitude and hope for the future. Throughout our lives you were always there to offer strength and protection for your "little brother", no matter what the situation. Your physical body may have worn out but, your Beautiful Spirit is everlasting. I will be thinking of you each day and will give a hearty "ROLL TIDE" for you this season. Love you dearly, Leonard R. McCray (Penn)
