    I have many beautiful memories of Big Albert, as I knew him. He was a kind and generous person. He always welcomed me in his home and made me feel loved. Little did he know, many days I spent away from my own home and with his family were to escape and be somewhere that I could feel loved. Big Albert always showed love. For that, and many more reasons, I am eternally grateful to have known him. I will also miss his cooking and espresso, just as much an artist there as he was with a million dollar yacht. Rest in peace. Your love and spirit will not be forgotten. From Corndog.

    I did not know Alberto Mejia Sr. however I do know his son Alberto Mejia Jr. and your son is an amazing compassionate young man. I had him as a student at Meany Middle School when you first moved here from California and have maintain that friendship over the years.

    My heart goes out to your family and your spirit lives on in the yachting community as well as in your wonderful children.

    Go in Peace!

    If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I’d like to do
    Is to save every day till eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you

    If I could make days last forever
    If words could make wishes come true
    I’d save every day like a treasure and then
    Again, I would spend them with you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do, once you find them
    I’ve looked around enough to know
    That you’re the one I want to go through time with

    If I had a box just for wishes
    And dreams that had never come true
    The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
    They were answered by you

    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do, once you find them
    I’ve looked around enough to know
    That you’re the one I want to go through time with

    I miss you.
