Alvin,
I remember you and your little boy at our security meeting at the Wyndham Franklin Plaza... We some how made it through those midnight shifts, protecting guests without a single weapon....You were a marine, and a fine gentlemen devil dog! We spread out through the landscape to counter the crime culture that contaminates our society. We all made it to
PDs and continue your legacy of fierce bravery towards the most violent
in our worlds. YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH US ALVIN!!
