One Condolence for “NORTH PEIGAN Alvin”

  1. Greg Smith says:

    I loved Alvin, I spent years with him at his place of residence in Downtown Calgary,where he would bring with him an undeniable energy,a light. Alvin had great warmth,in his smile, he could share love with a handshake,or a hug. There was a great sadness there behind his bright blue eyes, I know from talking late into the night,many nights,that he loved and missed many many of his friends and family,and loved them all deeply.He will always have a special place in my heart and head full of him,and his mishevious smile. I was incredibly blessed to have had time with Alvin. If you ever met him you could never forget him. R.I.P. Alvin North Peigan, you are loved and missed.
