I am so sorry to hear of Alvin’s passing. I look at his photo and all the memories of Little League come flowing back to me at Bethlehem. They were the very best of times. I know he is now watching, coaching or even playing a game or two up there. Love to all the family.

Al pretty much always had a few words to perk you up and have you feeling a little bit better than you were a few minutes ago. . . .His love for understanding how something worked took him deep into incredible complexities.
