We are all so grateful for Alfred, as God's gift to us, for too short a time. However, Adrienne, you know well how much he meant to his birth family and to your family. His quiet and cheerful manner touched all of us. His patient acceptance of the disease that weakened his mind and his body and the loving care he received from you, his family and all his health care providers, are an inspiration to all of us. God gives us life to be nourished and shared with great love. His love for family and friends was matched with love from family and friends. God grant Alfred eternal happiness and peace. God console us with his mercy and inspire us to continue living our lives, with great love.
