  3. My heart felt condolences go out to Edith and family. I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet him and get to know him in the time I lived there. He touched the hearts of everyone he met. He loved children and my grandson was at the receiving end of that. He will be in our memories.

  4. My most sincere condolences to Auntie Edith and all Uncle Alden’s family & friends. I’m sure going to miss him. I didn’t get over there as much as I should have, but am so grateful to have had a visit with him recently. Say hi to the folks for me Uncle as I’m pretty sure you and Dad and all the old gang have already been catching up. Love ya
