Words cannot express the sadness I feel for my childhood friend Dillone and her family on the passing of Alvin. I was there as a teenager so many years ago to witness the beginning of their love story which continued “until death do us part”.  They truly were soulmates.  I know Dillone’s strong faith in God will help her in the days to come.  But for now, everyone’s eyes are heavy.  RIP Alvin after a life well lived  Love, Patti Brantigan Lawler

Dear Dillone and family,
I was saddened to hear of "Uncle Junior's" passing (my mom always referred to him as "Junior"). Mom always enjoyed talking with him and loved him dearly.

I am so sorry that we were not able to make the service, but know that we are thinking and praying for all of you.

Mike & Debbie (Taylor) Nelms
