Letter to Alvin from his son, Aaron

Dear Dad,

There are something's I want to tell you. To start, you have been the best dad I could have ever asked for; you showed me and taught me everything from: how to ride a bike, how to fish and hunt and how to deal with life lessons. I am also so glad that you were able to meet and spend time with your grandson, meet my wife, and watch us get married.

I so much enjoyed spending time with you, and all the times we worked together which I will never forget. Dad I want you to know I am very proud of you and I will show my son everything you shared with me and taught me in life.

You will never be forgotten in my eyes.

Love your son,
