I had a fond respect for Albert when I was manager of Coltra and of Wabag Lodge back in the late 70s and 80s. Our family's home at landamanda overlooked Teremanda and Sari and often Albert walked up the hill and sat on the grass with us and the afternoons wafted by so pleasantly.

He was a good bloke. We all loved him. Even though I was older than my friend I had a deep respect for his penetrating insights into the world of culture, religion and politics. He and Akii Tumu and Luke Kembol and Ben Lokain and Peter Piaoen and Theo Askon walked Enga with grace.

Don Kapi and Leoas Kipalan also were beneficiaries of the legacy of Albert but none reached the heights that my friend Albert reached.

I am disheartened to read the mockery contained in some lines written on this forum by a longlong who has no idea of respect and of Enga.

My son was born at Sopas. Landapen still carries his Enga name for we are all Piao and we are all Engan, no matter our birthplace and colour off skin.

Sir Albert, old mate, I'll look for you when my time arrives and maybe we'll have a few laughs as we did all those long years ago.

See you later, wantok.

Lyang Adrian Kepe,

My father told me about you and it is suprising to know that you're still alive. Maybe I have have seen you during my childhood days. And my dad is a great supporter to Late Sir. Albert Kipalan.

Do have some old pics? I'll show it to my dad before he kicks the bucket.
