    Dear Karl and Rose:
    With deep sorrow in my heart, I send my condolences to you both and to all in the family.
    Alberto was my coworker at Bergdorf Goodman for many years. Thanks to his personality, his sense of humor, and singing voice, I, along with many of us, had so much fun while dealing with customers. I will remember his arias and his dancing performances on the selling floor or in the stockroom that brought joy, smiles and so much laughter even from our patrons.
    Alberto was a man of faith, thus I know God and the angels are happy to have him there filling the heavens with his music.
    RIP Dear Alberto.

    Dear Karl,

    Alberto, and yourself, will always be my most cherished neighbors. You made our neighborhood and apartment building much more classy and enjoyable.

    When I started my career at the age of 23, I would run into him at auditions in NYC and talk about my acting career. He was always very encouraging. I will never forget listening to him sing from your apartment as I walked through the parking lot.

    Everyone will miss him terribly, but please know that is because he was such a wonderful man. I feel blessed to have known him.
