So sorry for you all There were many memories of Alvin and of the family as we grew up. many days playing at the house in the basement showing Jeff how toys are to be used and running around after school Jeff you truly are like a brother to many of us as we have done much together and now we share in the grief of a loss.

Alvin always treated me with good humor and talked to me like an equal he was good that way.
