Alvin my brother.... You introduced me to your sister at the dance. It was me, you, Nina & Donna. I owe you the world for that one act of caring. Which you were well known for my brother.
We rode together. We worked together. We partied & we prayed together.
You were my brother-n-law. But more of a brother. You were also a very good friend.
You will be missed Alvin.
Much love for you man, Wayne.
