Though we've lost touch, I still greatly appreciate Alvin and his family's friendship and example. I was thinking of them today and discovered his passing. When I was a newlywed and new member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Alvin showed me how to love and serve others. He also showed gentleness and appreciatiin of others. I so appreciate him an Ruth and the kids. They were so work derful and welcoming to Cathy and me. All my best...
