Some of my fondest childhood memories were spent with Alvin and Clovis when they would visit us in Norfolk or when we would go to Roanoke. She and my Mother Joyce were friends my mom died Sept 16 2020 so I know she was there to greet Alvin. I remember whenever we were together there was always laughter and lots of hugs. I have never forgotten her and always held her dear in my heart. My sincerest condolences to her sons and daughter. A grateful thank you her friends Susan, Janice and Don for sticking by her through thick and thin sharing love and laughter and true friendship she was so deserving of all that you gave.
