Mrs. Huggins and Family, I find myself at a loss for words to describe how saddened I am in hearing about Alverdean. Mrs. Huggins, you and Alverdean have been very special to me since my childhood in Birmingham. I am sending my condolences, as well as my love, and prayers that God will give you and your Family the strength you will need to get through each day.

Especially for My Friend

My dear friend, no words can express how sorry I feel towards your unfortunate death. Someone once said, “To live in someone’s heart is to live forever!” Alverdean Huggins-Bonner is that friend I will carry in my heart forever. I often reminisce about the beginning of our friendship which began many years ago at Wenonah Elementary School. We instantly formed a formidable bond that has remained steadfast throughout the years. I remember how very nurturing and kind she was to her band students, many of whom she formed lifelong friendships. I admired her for her compassion she exuded for others, especially towards my sons.
I often traveled with Alverdean via cruises and attended other special events along with Roderick, Mom and Dad (Mr. and Mrs. Huggins). During those “Roll Tide”days, I met and came to love and appreciate many of Deannie’s relatives. I really felt like family! Alverdean, you are too well loved to ever be forgotten; therefore, you will always be in our loving memories! Rest In Jesus’ arms, My Dear Friend.

I cannot express into words the way Sis. Alverdean conducted her life. Certainly a life of giving, encouraging, mentoring and supporting. In the short time I’ve known her, she has impressed me with her character and accomplishments. She possessed a kind, receptive spirit that always put one at ease. What a great family, from Ms. Cora, the late Mr. Eddie Huggins, to Velda Pugh Kinsey (Who was a classmate of mine at Alabama), and others...high accomplished, highly thought of, and highly blessed. Sis Alverdean, rest on, God is proud of you!

What a shock it was to hear that our friend and former neighbor(from Collegeville on 30th Court) had passed. Deannie was soft spoken with a beautiful smile that followed. Deannie graduated Carver High with our (deceased) brother Ocie Howard Jr.. Now they are both in the best school ever, with our Lord Jesus Christ! We rejoice with you in knowing that we will see them again in heaven! We are praying for your strength and peace, that only God can give you during this time and in the future. Our deepest sympathy!
We love you!

Dr. Alverdean was a role model, Christian Woman, Scholar and Friend. Because of her advice, I attended and have earned a Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University. She was also one of the editors of a book I wrote. I thank God for using her in my life in more ways than words can say. We celebrate your life and thank God for blessing us to have known you Dr. Alverdean.
Peace, Blessings, and Love,
