Julia, I was sorry to hear of Alvin's passing after a long recuperation period. I've tried to feel what those long days were to you. Our 2 families had such a lot of good times in the past and I'm happy that Ron & Corinne were able to be there with you. Take care dear friend. Love, Mary Ellen

I remember with great fondness our trips to FL & spending time at your house; the picture of the garden particularly stood out to me.

I'm sorry that we won't be able to be at the service, but please know that you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Alvin was a special cousin in my growing up days, and a man for whom I always had the greatest respect. It has been good to be able to renew our friendship since our move to Florida.

God saw he was getting tired, so He put His arms around him and whispered, “Come with Me.” With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away, Although we loved him dearly we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best. We love you, Dad (and Grandpa)!
