"Alvin, there is a quote from one of your favorite Presidents, and the namesake of the high school you attended, that is emblematic of your journey and worth adding to this memorial for others to see. Happy Birthday for us!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt -"

You will always be an everlasting torch in my life as I continue to fight the injustices of public school and the SAT by continuing to provide minorities in poor communities with quality instructional modalities.

"I really never knew him, although opportunity for those who did is available. Loss is trying and burdensome but we must trust in God by the things we bare! (Mt. 11:29-30) The process is clear, we must learn of Jesus Christ, become yoked with him and he will bare with those whose yokes are heavy. For we all must pass that way! (Rom.5:11-13.)

You have my deepest condolences and may God bless you and yours according to his grace and mercy!"

"Still missing you, my friend.
                            
                          I'm  Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me
I took his hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all

My life been full I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Please don't lengthen it with undying grief

Lift up your heart and  share with me
God wanted me then, so he set me free.

Always loved,
Ashley E. Leonard and J. Jennifer Ash"
