    Mr. Titus was a sweet man. I got to know by delivering his lunches to him. He was always happy and loved to talk about the Cubs with me. I enjoyed talking to him and knowing him. He will be missed. God Bless him and his family.

    So sorry to hear of Mr. Titus’s death. I became acquainted with him through my mom Martha Wainscott as she also lived in the MHRC cottages. She was one of Titus’s card playing buddies before she passed away 3 years ago. In his possessions you might find a small ceramic rooster with a 2 or more hens. My mom bought him that. The rooster represented him, and at least 2 of the hens represented Esther, his long time faithful friend, & my mom who he was always so kind to. He certainly was a swell fellow and she appreciated him a lot.

    Dear Jim, Ann and Avery,
    We were so sorry to hear of Alonzo”s passing. He was such a kind and considerate man who always had time to talk and find out what was going on in your life. Growing up, it was always a joy to drop in on the Titus household–Alonzo and Sybil always made us feel welcome. After spending some time with Alonzo, it was easy to see where Jim got his sense of humor. Alonzo was a fixture down at the post office, and no matter how long the line was, he always worked in a quick conversation. I think sometimes my dad would make excuses to go into the post office just to talk to him. I guess what struck me most about Alonzo was that he always seemed to be at peace with himself. He knew who he was and never tried to be anything different. While he will be missed, he leaves a lasting legacy with his family and friends as a compassionate man who always had time for others. Jim, Ann and Avery, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
