I'm so sorry to hear of Alvin's passing. He was one cousin of mine who I knew was ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING!!! He always had a big smile on his face & a BIG HUG for me! I have missed seeing him regularly since I moved from the area.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Jo and your family at this time of your loss. May God guard and protect, comfort and strengthen you all during this time and days ahead.
I will always remember him and SMILE! :) My love to all of you...
