Dearest Selma and family, our Cherub Alvin has earned his wings. A Great friend, a special cousin, a total mensch in every way. His kind, loving, smiling face with that dimple in his chin, will be missed by everyone. May the beautiful memories help sustain you through this difficult time.

I cannot express how sad I am to hear about Alvin's death. Being the next door neighbor during our formative years, in many ways Alvin was like my 2nd father with me being the 4th Blaker boy. He was always there with a big smile and liking to laugh. His examples were many, especially what it meant to have a strong work ethic. I will truly cherish the memories of our gathering at the Blaker's house for a late night pizza and subs after we all came home from our Friday and/or Saturday nights out in High School. Alvin was always there. This is just one of many fond memories. My deepest sympathies to Selma, Alan, Eric, Robbie, and the extended family. Alvin will truly be missed, but will always keep a special place in my heart.
