I have always been a big fan of this show. I have watched reruns so often, I can almost say the lines with the actors. One thing I must have missed was whatever happened to Albert. I know he was supposed to have a fatal disease. But the last show I saw him in was when they were having a town celebration and he and Laura climbed the mountain along with all the school children. I know he made it to the top, and that was where the episode ended. There was at least one more special after that where they all blew up the buildings in the town, but they never mentioned Albert and how, when or if he died. Did I miss it? Or was it just supposed to be understood?
