Alvin was a great guy and always fun to be with, unless the Dawgs were playing and then you better be quite and don't walk in front of the tv. We loved him dearly and he will certainly be missed. We know his struggles with his health and pain are now over. He will rest peacefully. Love you too Cindy Lou.

So sorry to hear about Alvin. Alvin and Cindy were so welcoming to me when I started dating Michael. I knew I would see them every year at the annual New Years Eve Feast. Alvin was so easy to have a conversation with and he definitely could keep you laughing. He was very kind. I am sending condolences to the family. I know you will miss him but try to smile a bit faster knowing that Alvin left his mark on this world and it is all positive. With loving thoughts, Marilyn Tucker
