    Dear Alberts Boys,
    I know you're all men now, but you will always be the Alberts boys from way back when our parents would get together and we'd all play either on your farm or in Uehling. What a wonderful, fun time we would have, and I think I have all your names, maybe even in the right order - Val, Vaughn, Del Ray, Dean, and Byran (spelling doesn't count). Both your parents were always so welcoming, and now with your dad's passing, they are both awaiting Jesus to lift them up together with Him. I take great comfort in knowing the truth of that promise, and I pray that same comfort and trust for you, that it gives you peace in the days ahead. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
    Childhood friendships are unforgettable, and you are remembered fondly. May the spirit of joy that your parents displayed carry forward with you and your families.
    In God's peace,
    Nancy Hank (Popken)

    Stan & I want to offer our sympathy to you boy's in the passing of your dad.
    We fondly remember your mom saying: 2 Vs, 2 Ds, and a B. Enjoyed those
    early years with you west of Scribner when your dad and Stan went to ag classes having gotten out of service at the same time.
    We extend our sincere sympathy to you and all the family and will send a memorial gift to Dean's address. God's peace and comfort,
    Stan & Ione Popken
