Alvin was loved by all who knew him. His smile and sense of humor brought so much joy to our hearts. Alvin was known for putting others before himself, he would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He was adventurous and wanted do so much good in this world. He was always rushing through life doing everything he could do. We strongly feel that God had a different plan for our Alvin.
