My Uncle was the most fun! He always looked forward to seeing all the nieces and nephews. He was very compassionate, thoughtful and smart. He had so much experience. He loved to give us information that we could use in the real world. He was so giving! He made you laugh all the time. He had conversations for days. He took to my husband very well. And my husband, Rodney adored Uncle Alton. May he rest in peace! Love Liz (Abraham) Prince
