I want to express my condolences to the entire Lawrence family on the death of Albert Lawrence Sr. I came to know Mr Lawrence through my good friendship with Al "gov". mr Lawrence was always a kind and supportive gentleman whom I was proud to associate with. I am so sorry for his passing and regret I could not be there as I am out of town all week.
