He was one of the nicest & funniest down to earth person that we could be ourselves and feel comfortable around him. We hunged out so many times and made memories that would last a lifetime. About 15 years ago one night after work I went into THE TURNPIKE BAR and I
    hear someone calling my name. This handsome young man walking up to me trying to give me a hug.
    He said you don’t remember me. No I said. It’s Alfie. Omg you grew up and we hugged. He always made me feel accepted. I have mad love and respect for him. Alfie my friend until we party again save me the best seat in the house. RIP
