Ralene and I were honored to know Alton and Verline. They were both fun loving and cared deeply for their family. Enjoyed listening to them speak French. We know Alton is with Verline in Heaven. They were a Blessing to us.

I can only imagine your loss of this wonderful man. He loved all of you so much. Way back when, I spent much time in and out of your house. As a teen, I remember your dad as being quiet & stern, but as an adult, I was able to appreciate how kind and loving he was. I'm deeply saddened by his passing, but know that he is home with your sweet mother, in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Asking God to comfort your whole family & give you peace. Much love to y'all...
