So sorry to learn of John Ed's passing. Although we haven't had contact over the years since I was so much younger than him. I remember going to Thanksgiving dinners at Greatgrandma Alexander's in Burney, IN. He was the oldest boy in the group. John, Gordon, and I were there three to carry on the Alexander name.
My dad was Lotus, son of Ralph.
