    Mrs. Alcorn, Shari and Allen,

    Mr. Alcorn/your Dad was such a hard working and energetic man. I don't think I ever saw him sit still. Having you all as neighbors was and is a wonderful thing. My deepest sympathies for your loss. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed.

    Pansy, Alan, and Shari,

    My deepest sympathy to you. Bob was such an energetic man who could fix anything. I enjoyed being right across the street so I could watch him tend his huge garden. He was a very nice neighbor and friend. I will remember all of you in my prayers.
