I was sorry to hear of Al Crose's passing. I worked with him at Southern Bell/BellSouth in Greenville. He was a good friend, and will be missed.

It is always hard to hear that one of our classmates has passed .. equally as sad that we have not all stayed in closer contact.  Prayers for Alvin's family.

I didn't have the privilege of knowing Alvin, but I agree with Penny that it's always sad when one of your classmates passes. I'm praying that all of his family and friends will be comforted during this time of grief and that all the happy memories about Alvin will always be there to comfort them.
