Alvin........thank YOU so much for supporting our lovely friendship after roommate life on the dorm. Thank You for sharing your family with mine. Thank You for the many trips to Memphis so we could be together, for sharing vacations especially Hawaii and thank you for opening up your home to Darrell and I when we visited you all. And oh don’t let me forget bringing her to Cedine Women’s Retreat with her own personal caregiver/sister (Robin) or Sandra Lawrence (roommate). For all these precious memories I am especially grateful for at such a time as this. 💟
