Alfred and I were great friends during high school and spent many Sat. Nights riding around town. I lost touch with almost everyone when I moved to California to finish college. Alfred you were one of the good ones and I will always have fond memories.

Rest in peace.

Alfred and I shared multiple classes and were frequently seated together.  He was a really nice guy.
