still don't wanna believe that the last few days actually happened


as has been said, it was a very difficult day today...anytime any board members have met up before it's always been for a night out or party but to see everyone today at the funeral of one who would've been at the night out or party was hard to come to terms with...

but again as was said it was comforting to see so many off the board there to pay their respects...and also i hope this will provide some sort of comfort to his family of how highly thought of Alvin is amongst his friends and fello ravers

think the last time i got a proper chat to Alvin was at Unity 2....which thanks to Ricky was caught on camera even if only for a brief moment

you'll be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you m8

RIP mate, I'm sure your proud of the send off we gave you today, it's obvious you have have so many people who love and care for you.

Keep the Hardcore alive wherever you are, and perhaps come back to haunt the house heads.

i only met alvin the once after Unity, i went looking for Amanda, because we were leaving the good aul metrohole, after what was a classic night, and Kris the un-cut video has to be up'd???, anyway, i found Amanda, after meeting Alvin in the the corridor, he said room 36 "the goat is in there", long and behold "the goat "was there, so then Alvin came back, i talk to him + his girlfriend(they were both sound), then the goat got her act together, and we headed to the Giants Causeway and what a cause it was, stephen n and his great idea's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

may you rest in piece Alvin,

Well, whatever about the weather recently, it was rather strange but nice that we had such a beautiful day with the sun shining brightly today to send off Alvin. And I think we did him proud.... as everyone else said, it was nice to see the turnout there was.

I had my music on random shuffle last night and this tune came on, I couldn't help but share it with y'all. I thought to myself, what an apt and ironic tune, but one I'm sure Alvin would've been raving his heart out to if he heard it out.

RIGHT CLICK THIS &SAVE

Farewell Ufonix mate, until we meet again...


Regards,
Gus Mc

Reading some of the stuff posted really is truly heartbreaking. I'm just can't get over why he had to do it. So bloody sad and angry all rolled into one. I'll be having a few and having a bounce in your memory on Saturday night at Nation Alvin, you should still be with us m8

Today was so difficult, but it was so heartening to see so many members standing together, it definitely helped.... Seems the big man in the sky gave you the sunniest day of the year for your send off too mate....Still cant really take it in tbh

I take comfort in the fact that whatever it was that made you do what you did, at least you are in peace now... you are free. Sleep well mate

I was speaking to his brother earlier, and the family have been touched by the tributes on here. They have also asked could we gather together any photographs we had of Alvin... i told them you lot have started already (thanks amanda)

So if anyone has any photos can they please email them to me at subcultureuk@nioldskool.co.uk, or uploaded to a file sharer and PM the link.... we can gather them all up and i'll send them a CD with our chairty donations

I was very annoyed that I could'nt get to the funeral yest, as Chris told you all there. I can only put into words my respects, memories and thoughts of Alvin. Then what made me worse, was the fact I was unable to stand in unison with my fellow nioldskool members, representing one of the biggest hobbies in my life, to give a final farewell to one of our extended family members sad.gif

Right guys firstly i must apologise, as its been a long long time since i`ve been on here. I`ve had lots of shit going on(although nowt in comparison to this) and have lost touch with several of the forums i used to go on.

Secondly i must also apologise for bumping this thread up again but ive just come across this today by accident. I had absolutely no idea this had happened, So i wanted to leave my respects.

Although I had never met alvin in person, I had spoken to him on the phone a couple of times and also used to chat on msn and via the forum. So i am truly shocked that i`ve discovered he is no longer with us. Although from the conversations that i did have with him it was very apparent that he was a really sound decent guy.

So i just like to pass somewhat belated condolences on to all who knew him,
and say RIP Alvin mate, you were a true gentleman.

Dave,
Digital Commandos.
