    I’m going to miss you big brother. I know we had our differences but I still loved you none the less. Your my BROTHER.

    How sad I was to hear of your passing at such a young age. When I think back at our childhood memories, we sure did spend a lot of time together. Christmas time, family get togethers and then there was our birthdays. Yours the 21st, mine the 22nd and your brother Greg the 23rd. May God comfort your family in this time of sorrow.

    My condolences to the entire family. I have so many great childhood memories with Alvin and the rest of the kids. Dorothy’s screaming voice is forever etched in my brain. I wish I would have noticed this earlier so I could have attended the funeral. RIP Alvin.
