Today would have been our 64th Wedding Anniversary. I miss you so much. You had given me so much joy just by being who you were and by surrounding me with love & respect. I have so many memories of the things you did to make me happy.
All the many things we did with our two sweet sons, Keith & Bruce. Also our spoiled little dog, Tybee.
We will always be thankful for you as a husband & father.
I won't be bitter or sad that you are not here with us. I know you are at peace with our Lord.
Everyone who knew you all your life knew you were a good & kind man.
No more sickness or pain.
Love always, your wife & best friend, Frances
Can not believe it been a year since u left us miss you very much
It's hard to believe it has been a year since you left us. I hope you are at peace now and never have to face illness or pain ever again! I think of you often and miss your presence for sure! When I look at some of the record albums you left behind to Bruce and myself, I always find fond memories to relate with many of them. Someone once said "You die 3 times, #1 is when your heart stops beating, #2 is when you are buried or cremated, and #3 is when someone says your name for the very last time" .... well in my Daddy's case his being or spirit will never die because his name will forever be said and thought of as long as his family is alive to remember him!
Love you always..... your son, Keith
On this summer day one year ago we all lost a very special dear man. For me, he was my Daddy. I can't hardly believe that it's been already one year since you passed away. It seems like it was only just a few months ago. It's been a hard challenging past year to get thru with you not being here for our Thanksgiving, Christmas, all of our birthdays & just recently Father's Day.
It makes me realize even more today now of how much you truly enriched all of our lives with you being here to share great memories together. I will never forget especially our last 30 years of us together. We did a lot of long distance traveling in our cars to different places during those years. I probably wouldn't have never gotten to see those places if it wasn't for you willing to help me drive all those long trips to Las Vegas, California, Niagra Falls, Canada & so many others that I won't ever forget.
Now I have to mention one very special gift I received at Christmas one year. My Daddy was truly a craftsman when it came to working with wood. This one particular project was him building me a replica of Elvis Presley's home known as Graceland. He worked on this for many months, kept it hidden away in the garage from me all those months. The detail of this house was superior to anything I have ever seen anywhere!! Even the smallest detail inside the house with all the furniture was done with precision. He really put a lot of hard long hours into building this house. So when I was given this house at Christmas I was totally surprised at what he had built. I don't think I have ever gotten any gift ever that brought out such joy & emotion in me. I was crying my eyes out with such love of what I had received. Still today that precious gift sits above my TV in my playroom. I am always reminded when I look at it, what a precious sweet caring Daddy I got to share my life with.
This past year has really got me thinking more of how Thankful & Blessed that I got to share & love all these endless sweet memories with my Daddy up until you were 83 years young. You will never be forgotten ever. Love you always, your loving son, Bruce
I want to Thank my family, friends & neigbors for all the support & kindness that you all have given me through this hard challenging past year.
Love to all,
To my husband & my friend,
Today will be one year since you went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. I am speaking with all my heart today, so it's only natural for me to tell you that I miss you every day & that I love you. You were a wonderful husband & Father to our two sons. Also a good Papa to our little dog Tybee.He still goes into Papa's room & looks at your picture. He misses you!
We are all trying to get together at times with one another.
Bruce has kept his promise to you which was to take good care of me for you. Thank you for all the shared times, shared memories, shared joys & love. I feel so lucky that you were my husband & friend. Love you, your wife Frances
Prayers lifted for the Alverson Family (Aunt Frances, Bruce, and Keith) remembering Uncle Ham as he went to be with the Lord last year. Love you guys bunches!
Hard to believe it will be one year tomorrow that Ham went home to be with the Lord. Thanks for all the sweet memories that we have. Miss you....Aubrey and Helen
Truly a great dad to his sons. ...we miss you too....Aubrey and Helen
I just want to say Happy Father's Day today to my dear sweet Daddy. I was happy to have visit you yesterday at the cemetery where you were laid to rest. I truly miss you being around. It's just not the same anymore without you here. Forever Love to one very special man who I'm honored to have had you for my Daddy for all these years. I cherish all the years & memories we got to share together. Those will always be priceless to me!!! Love you always, your loving son, Bruce
Happy Birthday today to you Daddy. I'm really missing you especially today on your special day. Love you always, your loving son, Bruce
On this morning I want to say Merry Christmas to my dear loving Daddy.I know how you always loved Christmas time.I remember all the years back on Godby Rd in College Park of how you used to start real early of putting out all the Christmas decorations at the house.When he was finished he couldn't be more proud of what a beautiful display of lights he had done.He used to have Christmas music playing outside also. All of our holidays were always very special with Mama, Daddy, Keith & I. I will always cherish the great memories we all shared together during the holidays.So on this first Christmas without you I will be thinking of you Daddy with all my heart.I truly am missing you especially on today. Always & Forever Love to one very special person, the man I am proud & love to call him my Daddy.
I regret just hearing of Charles Alverson's passing back in July. Charles and his family were very good friends of Carol and I. I had the distinct pleasure of having the Alverson's as a real estate client of mine while I worked at Re/Max. More than a Client, they immediately became close friends of ours. They were the kindest family I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. We are deeply saddened by the news of his passing, and will keep the family in our prayers. Charles was an exceptional person who we loved and adored. Rest in Peace my Friend.
Bruce, it will get better for you and your Mom. You will always remember that your Dad is not with you but he would want you to go on and do things like you did befor. The next few months are not going to be easy but you can make it. Try to do things as close to normal as you can for your Dad would want you to and you know he would want you to be happy. Just remember that people do love you and that they are there for you, it is time for you to start taking care of yourself now.
Bruce, I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I remember meeting your dad (& mother) for the first time back in the mid 80's. After spending just a few minutes with them I remember thinking, 'Bruce has the coolest parents in the world'. He always made me feel so welcome in your home and like I was a part of the family. I certainly see where you got your love of music from, and you both passed a little of it on to me. I still have some ticket stubs from concerts we all went to. My favorite was Neil Diamond at the Omni in July 1989. You guys bought that ticket for me as an early birthday present. Good memories of a great man. I will be praying for you and your mother during this difficult time.
Just wanted to tell you Daddy on this Labor Day weekend & Mama's 81st Birthday that I missed you terribly being there with us.It just wasn't the same without you there. I remember the good ole days back when I was growing up when our Labor Day holidays were special. We had our cookouts & made Homemade ice cream with all of us plus we always watched together the Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy. We always wonder each year if Jerry could raise enough money to surpass the year before. And he usually did!
We had Mama's 81st Birthday to celebrate also. Our birthday get togethers in the past were always very special to me. We would always eat lots of good food & lots of birthday cake. Daddy,Keith & me always took a lot of photos of our family. We all love photography. But this year we barely took any at all. Nobody was in the mood for it. It just wasn't the same without Daddy there being in the pictures with us. A Mighty Big void indeed!
The days following Daddy's passing has been very challenging & very tough to get through. Not one day goes by without thinking of Daddy in some way.
I miss you dearly in every way.
Always Forever Love, from your loving son Bruce
Ms Frances, Bruce, Keith
Hope you all had a great day and that you got a lot done. There is a light at the end and you are just about there.
Do not work so hard for it will be there later. I still think of you all everyday and hope you are getting better each day. I know it is not easy
but you will learn to make the best of everyday. Love you all very much.
Mrs. Frances Alverson & family
It was nice to speak with you. I was very sorry to hear about the loss of your husband Charles. I hope you found joy in the time you spent together and the memories you shared. Take care of yourself and know you're in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Alverson family and Tybee, how sad we were to hear of Mr. Alverson's passing. What a wonderful, kind man. Of course we know him best for his gentle and loving relationship with his sweet Tybee. We are all going to miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Keith, Frances and Bruce:
Mr. Alverson and all of you have a special place in my heart and memory. We spent many hours enjoying music and talking about all the fun of going to concerts, etc. I always felt welcome in your home and I really do appreciate that.
I know what it's like to lose a father or "Daddy"......it is not easy. I'll keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I love you all and God bless each of you.

Aunt Frances, Keith and Bruce: Just want to let you know how much I love you and loved Uncle Ham. Prayers lifted up for the whole Alverson Family.
Aunt Frances, Keith and Bruce: I really don't know how to express my feelings for Uncle Ham. He was the best uncle. I always knew he loved me and that I could call on him if I ever needed anything. His hugs were the best in the world. I believe my love for music (and dancing) is because of all the time we spent together. I still want a ping pong table.....we had so much fun together when we lived on Godby Road. Everything always seemed so big and bright and entertaining at the Alverson house. Uncle Ham always made sure we had fun. I am looking forward to getting together and watching some of "those" movies Uncle Ham made. Thank you for the beautiful service and tribute ya'll put together for Uncle Ham's homegoing. It was perfect - even the rain paused for us. I really enjoyed getting to spend the day with ya'll remembering all the joy Uncle Ham brought into our lives. I love ya'll very much. Hope to see you again soon. Love Angie Yevick
to the Alverson family, I just wanted to say I was still thinking about you and hope you are getting better. Just wanted to say you are a very special family and I am glad I got to meet you all.
Frances, Keith, Bruce:
Ham was a favorite of mine. Ya'll all are. Words can't begin to tell ya'll how much my heart goes out to each one of you. Frances, I can't begin to understand what the loss of a husband really means but I can relate to Keith and Bruce with the loss of a father. I know that Ham was as special and loved by them as much as I loved my daddy. Time goes by and it does lessen the grief but the void that's left never gets filled. Love and cherish your Mama. She's a very special lady in my life and I know that she is in yours. I will cherish the times we spent together growing up and the times ahead for us. Love Helen
Just wanted to let you know that we- Boswells, Millers & Yevicks - made a donation to Southwest Christian Care in Ham's name.
Enjoyed the visit we had Friday with you and Bruce. We plan on visiting often.
I know that your life is changing but I'm praying that this change will be made easier as each day goes by.
Ham was very special to us and we will miss him but know that this doesn't mean we will forget him.
You're also very special to me and I hope that we'll see each other often.
Love you and look forward to our next visit.
I hated to hear that you loss Charles. You and him were together a long time & I know that you miss him. Be strong, may God continue to bless you.
Keep the faith.
Franse and family, I am so sorry for your loss. He was a kind person . He will be missed you in my thoughts and prayers.
Frances, Bruce, and Keith,
Larry and I were so sorry to hear about Ham's passing. We understand the pain of pancreatic cancer first hand and the pain that is shared by the family during this time. We pray for a cure for this cancer in our lifetime so no other family has to go through this. Ham was a very special person always showing the love he had for his family and especially his "special" Tybee. Mama always love it when she had that special visit from Frances and Ham and of course Tybee. Our prayers will be for you and the family to receive the peace and strength you will need to accept his passing. I know you have wonderful memories to share of Ham. Thank you again for being so thoughtful and sending us the In Memory card.
My deepest condolences. I only learned recently of your father's condition. I empathize with what you're going through. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Field Service Representative 1, Redbox
Randy told me about your dad passing. Please accept my deepest sympathies. I had forgotten what your family looked like since it had been so long since I had seen them. I also forgot that your dad and I shared the same given name.
I want to thank you for sharing our grief with the passing of
Joel and for being our friend over the years. Randy has shared a very close freindship with you and your family and I appreciate that very much..
Have Randy bring you up for a visit. We will go out to dinner.
My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow.
Mrs Alverson and boys. I just want to say it was my honor to help help you with the arrangments and the visitation for Mr. Alverson. I am sure he was a great person, and you are all a very nice family. If there is a time you need to talk or a shoulder to cry on let me know. Thanks again for letting me be a little part of helping you make the best of a bad time.
Charles "Ham" was a long time friend. We visited often until my husband Eldon died. He and Ham were boyhood friends and neighbors. He was so talented and grew the best tomatoes around. He was so generous. Really respect and love his whole family. Will really miss him. Frances Keith and Bruce, you had the best. The Eldon Pierce Family

For many years my wife and I admired the loving care you bestowed on your wife and Tybee. As owners of the same breed we thought we had spoiled her more than anyone until we met you. Know that as you now look down upon us they will remain in our devoted care. Rest in peace. Rick and Elaine
He was a good and kind father in law. He loved his family very much!
He could do most anything, he built a replica of the birthplace in Tupelo
for me for Christmas years ago, something I cherish still to this day! He
also built Keith a replica of Graceland also. He was always making cd's
and dvds with his recorder for family and friends that he thought they would
like to have, and he also loved to take pictures of the family on special occasions! He love to travel by car also... to the beach, Nashville, all the way to California twice! He is going to be missed greatly. I loved him and I am glad he is at peace.
The world has lost a wonderful, loving, caring and generous man who has meant a great deal to me over many, many years. I always considered him my second father and was proud to be considered by him and his family as a third son. I cherish the memories of the times I spent with the family and I share your loss. I love you all.
Keith I'm so sorry for your loss. I will remember you and your family in my prayers.
Keith and Marsha,
We hurt for you and your family. Wonderful people always leave such a void when they go. Know that we care and hope to be there for you in the days ahead if we can be of any help at all.
Keith, Please extend our sincere condolences to your entire family at the passing of your father. While I don't recall ever meeting the man, knowing you tells me he must have been one very special person that you can be proud of for his life. While the passing of a loved one is a great loss, we will always have the wonderful memories of their life just as with other famous and special people we know.
