I never got the chance to meet Mr. Alvarez but have been friends with his son Bill for many years now. I believe we are all products of our parents and in knowing Bill, he was a great man. I am so sorry for the loss and nothing can be said as we mourn them here on this earth. But I hope he is in the arms of his Heavenly Father now. I pray for strength and peace for the Alvarez family.
