Happy Belated Birthday mommy!

I am sure you know they had Frank's memorial on Sunday. Your birthday! For some reason God chose to take him from us 2 days before the 10th anniversary of your death but he was honored on your birthday. The memorial was beautiful. You would have been happy to be there. You were always so proud of him even when you didn't show it! During the program they showed him the honor that was due him. People and students he knew through the years came out to celebrate him. It was so nice mommy. I was so proud. He turned out to be everything daddy wanted him to be! He was named after a king and he was honored as one! It was a great day and it was on your birthday!

Happy Birthday mommy! The recent virus has caused most of us to stop and reflect on our life and the lives of those who are no longer with us. We miss you and wish you were still physically here with us. But you will always be here with us in spirit. Our memories of you will never leave us. I thank you for the life you gave me and I thank God that I am still able to live it and remember the good.

The emptiness that is created by a loved one's death is forever "changing". Sometimes it seems that they are right next to you then at other times it's like they are around the corner; out of sight but near., Mommy i miss you so much in so many ways.

Another year another reminder that death is inevitable and that we should cherish those we love while we and they are here. It won't make losing them any less painful but it allows you to have good memories to hold onto. Mommy I thank you for the sacrifices you made for me.

Hello mom.

Mommy, it has been a full year since your death. We all miss you and nothing fills the void. Remembering the early days of our lives overshadows the painful memories of the last days. Rest in peace.

Mommy I miss you so much. The fact that we were apart (New Jersey /North Carolina has made your transition easier and yet much harder. I have to remind myself that you are no longer physically here. When i talk to/with Charmain, it's so easy to close my eyes and hear your voice. Although I am also living with you via Stefani's "attitudes". Love you Mommy!

Mommy, you taught me to be a strong willed person like you. Someone who did not wait for people to do things for them. Someone who was not afraid to look at life for what it was and to keep going. I am thankful to God that we were able to spend more time with each other in your last days. Rest in peace mommy. You will be missed.

My mother was a very strong and passionate person. She taught me that your belief in self was the foundation for your life and the degree of that belief would determine your successes as well as your understanding of life. Mommy I will miss you and love you forever. I thank you (and Daddy) for showing me how to be a great parent.

There are few people in this world that have had the profound affect on my life like my brother Carroll Frank Alston. He was a very special person and I always looked up to him and loved him. We did not talk to each other every day. But when we did it was like we had just spoke to one another.
I will always cherish the good times we had together and all the precious memories we had growing up!
My prayer is that God gives my nephew Carroll and his sister Stefanie the peace and courage to continue living the lives that made my brother so proud of them. And that his wife Remona finds the strength to do all that needs to be done in the coming days!!!
CARROLL FRANK ALSTON JR. (8/9/1950-12/28/2021)
Take your rest Frank. You did well!!!!

Carroll Alston III (announcement on his FB page!)

April 28, 2022
On December 28, 2021, my father and best friend Carroll Frank Alston II passed away. That morning the world lost more than a great man. The world lost an amazing father, a supportive husband, and the greatest friend anyone can ask for. Those who know me know how close I am to my father and how much he means to my family and I, and this has been the hardest thing I've ever dealt with in life. We miss him beyond measure, but I made him a promise a short while ago that whatever happens in life, we will carry his legacy on when he is no longer here. Carry on his wise teachings and sound advice. Carry on his thought process. Carry on his outlook and his great sense of humor. Carry on how sensitive he was and how much he cared for those he loved. And most importantly carry on that love. The love he gave me from the very first day I was born until the last moments we spent together. My father taught us so many things in life. Countless times he was there for me and made me feel heard and understood. The best thing he taught me was how to love unconditionally and what true love really is. I don't know how I will move forward without him but in the words of the late Carroll Frank Alston II, I will do it "bit by bit. Day by day. Minute by minute. Hour by hour." I will do it with the foundation he laid for my mother, sister, and I. I Love You Dad. We love you and miss you dearly and please let me know how the fishing is up there.
Love Your Foundation,
The Alston's
