  1. Dear Alvin. You will be missed by so many
    . You have always been such a large part of my life. I wish I had the words to say how much you were loved by so many. You and Daddy were always so close. There were so many times I came to you for advise because Daddy would be overseas working. You always treated me like I was your very own. If I was scared you were there if I was sad you were there if I just didnt understand something you were there to give me advise. How were we to know that we would loose both of you in the same year. I hope and pray that you and Daddy are proud of me and Mindy we are trying so hard to make this a wonderful celebration of life for you. Michael has some big shoes to fill with your love of music and David has been so strong during all of this. I know your grandchildren and all the rest of the family will also miss you dearly. I am thankful for all of the memories that we have all made together thru the years. My heart wont let me say Goodby so for now I will just say see ya later. Tell Daddy I said I love him and give him a hug for me. Love Always JoAnna
