Alvin was always doing things for other people. He was a wonderful brother-in-law. I will miss cooking for him when he came to visit. He loved custard pie. He loved listening to gospel tapes and C D's.

Mr. Stover was a very nice man. He was a very good athlete and coach.  Most of all a good friend to all. He cared about his family and his community.

Hi Dixie! You have my condolences with Al’s passing.  He has been promoted to Heaven.  How happy he is! But we MISS him here.  I will greatly miss his classic Al Stover greeting:   he was always very warm but had that glint of mischief!!   Again, my heart is with you.  A part of you is gone.  You will continue.  May you fully embrace God’s solace at this time.

Dixie & family & Melvin,  I am so sorry to learn of Alvins' passing.  I always enjoy talking with him & Melvin.  I'm so sorry, I missed reading his obit in the paper, I try to read them daily, since I live at Indian lake. Please give Pam & Rhonda, my sympathy & regrets I missed seeing them.  May God wrap His loving arms around you all at this difficult time & the days to follow.
