    Dearest Alwyn. It’s still hard to believe and difficult to accept that we will be burying you in a few hours. You are the youngest in our generation and you left us too soon. But the good Lord has taken you home and we trust in.His Divine Will.

    Thank you for always being ready to help even when I least expected it. I Wil always treasure the times we spent together. Godspeed cousin. Love you .
