It is with find memories that I am expressing my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Alvin Griffith. I worked with him for a few days at District A. he was a corporal that exposure left a lasting impression on me. We have had one on one interaction since and what amazed me is how he recalled our early encounter. He was always affable even when the odds were against him that's one lesson I've learned from him.
Griff, I know you will be having a cup of tea on your way out.
May You Rest in Peace my friend.
