Rip Old Friend, you saved my life

His Name was Alvin Ives Jr. 20 years ago in August, he went to his eternal reward.

When I met you, I stuttered, I could not read anymore. I also lapsed into baby talk.

You were a quiet, sweet person, but I could trust you. On September 2nd, 1997, you took my hand and led me to my first AA meeting. I still remember how warm your hand was.

I was pretty fogged up that night, but I remember.

Thank You Al, for saving my life all those years ago. Thank You. -L
