The following is a letter to the editor regarding in last Friday for Alvin Brinza, a deceased 20-year-old La Grange man and LTHS graduate:
Please accept my sincerest thanks to all who came out for my son's vigil. Your kind words about my son are truly apprecated. Thank you all for taking time out of your day to shed light on my son's life.
Alvin was the most kind, loving, caring, compasionante son any mother could ask for. His smile could light up any room; his laugh was contagious; his personallity was infectious and his heart was pure.
My heart is broken beyond repair. His presence will be missed. It was unfortunate that his extended family was not able to be part of his life, but he was truly loved by everyone.
- Florica Brinza, mother of Alvin
