Louise ,Marlene and Marsha I am so sorry to hear about Alton. I often think about when we were all kids and lived across the street from each other. God bless all of you with peace and strength in the coming days in knowing that he is at peace. We will all miss and love you forever. This is like us losing a little brother because we all considered your family as an extention of ours. Love you all . Donna
