What a lovely lady! I worked with Alvina for
many years at the Children’s Training Ctr. and
she was one of my favourite people....so wise,
kind, friendly and funny. I used to stop in and
visit her and Charlie once a year when I was in Digby after I had moved to Kingston and they
always made me feel so welcomed and glad to
see me. Alvina always had something baked and we’d sit and chat over a cup of tea. She was
so proud of her family and would mention all
of your names during the visit. Little did I know
then that I would be working with some of you
in the future! My heart goes out to Charlie as I
know how devoted they were to each other and it will be very hard for him to go on without her, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss and I hope you will be
comforted knowing that she is at peace in the
presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Heaven will never be the same with Alvina
