What a life that Mr. Alvardo led, one can only imagine what he saw and experienced during his lifetime. I will always remember him driving around in his truck and when he got where he could not drive anymore I remember how sad it was when I drove by the house and saw it sitting there. The truck seemed lonely without him. I know his family will miss him. He was a quiet and strong man. My condolences to you.
