I remember Alvin as one of Jim’s favorite workers when they worked together at Payne and Dolan. It’s been 11 years ago today that I lost Jim to cancer and I can only imagine the joy they both must feel being in their heavenly home. Our deepest sympathy at the pain of your loss.

So sorry about the loss of Alvin. It has been years since I have seen him, since I now live in Florida. I was a neighbor of Alvins until I moved away when I graduated. I remember waiting on him at the grocery store one day and he told me I gave him the wrong change back. I had given him to much back. I will always remember how honest I felt he was., I also know my father though a lot of Alvin. He was the last person he called before he died. Rest in peace Alvin. My sympathy goes out to his entire family
