Israel's parents would like to share these thoughts . . . Our darling Israel Eugene Albus was lifted to Heaven by God’s angels on the evening of December 24th, 2022. His strength surpassed what doctors had predicted, touching lives of many for 14 months. Israel had the most unique, beautiful soul and genuine personality of anyone we had known. Despite living the first 2.5 months of his life in the NICU and enduring 9 hospital stays, he always found reason to radiate the room with his smiles. He will be so dearly missed and forever loved. We'd like to thank everyone for the prayers that have been offered and the kindness that has been shown to our family.
