I attended Alva's well done service on 8-11-20. I had the pleasure of knowing Alva for over 25 years. As her cousin, we share many birthday dinners, and got together often. She will be missed.

My aunt Alva best aunt ever. Whenever I would come on vacation to Florida I would stay with her and we would do stuff together like going to senior class on Tuesday and then to lunch. On Wednesday we would go to Bible studies at the pastor's house , after Bible studies was over we would have some refreshments and little bit of chit-chatting. On Sunday we would go to church at 9:30 and after the service was over we would go to lunch and after lunch we would go home. I'm going to miss all that . When my vacation was over I would not be going home empty-handed because I would be returning to Canada with all the clothes and shoes that my aunt would give to me. I'm going to miss her dearly I love her so much so so much.
Gone but not forgotten. Her Niece Carmelita Davidson

She will be greatly missed by all of us Davidson's.

I'll always remember Aunt Alva for her loving smile and her great sense of style. Her clothes and accessories were always perfectly put together. Our interactions with Aunt Alva were always warm and kind.

Aunt Alva took excellent care of my grandmother (Mildred Kabis) before she passed away. I was in the room once when Aunt Alva corrected the caretaker. Aunt Alva was a strong advocate for proper nursing and the comfort of the patient. I could tell she was an excellent nurse and I was so glad she was there to watch over Grandmom's care.

With love from Joan's daughter, Jeanne

We met Alva after she married Chuck's cousin Tom Kabis . Every year we had a Kabis Cuz get together usually on the east coast of Florida. We shared stories of family and her Jamaican history drew us together even more. We've traveled there & loved the reggae music of Bob Marley. I remember one time, the Kabis cuz's came to our home and Chuck got out his guitar and bongos and played some "Bob" music. Alva, & Marge & Joan were on their feet dancing around the living room! Lots of laughter and fun. I told Alva that she and I were the Kabis "outlaws" as everyone else were born a Kabis and we married into the Kabis family. We have alot of great memories & we will miss Alva very much. She was a real jewel to us. I'm so glad that we had a nice long telephone call 2 days before she passed.. God bless you sweet Alva. We will miss you. Marge and Chuck Kabis

To Dear Alva,
You are now in the arms of our Lord and you have reached the goal we are all hoping to attain . You are hurting no more. It saddened me to see you suffer for so long with such poor eyesight and a painful back.
You will be missed by many but we are comforted to know that you are hurting no more.
With love from your sister-in-law,
