It was with a sad heart I read of the passing of Jimmy. He had many fine attributes; but above all he was a caring loving man. It was my privilege to have known him and his loving wife.

I had the pleasure of becoming friends with Mr. Alcorn while he worked at Mosheim School. He was such a nice man. I always remember the presentation that he and Donna gave to the kids each year for Heritage Days. We all enjoyed it so much. Prayers to Mrs. Alcorn and the family.
