To the family of Mr. Alonso:
I saw Braulio Alonso's obituary in the paper last night and I was flooded with a lot of memories of my time with Mr. Alonso. Mr. Alonso was the principal of King High School from which I graduated in 1965. I worked 1 class period in the principal's office where the old trunk phone system was and that was what I did was to answer the phones for 1 hour daily. I remember exactly what happened the day when school was in session and Mr. Alonso received word that President Kennedy had been assinated and he went to his knees and wept. After he regained some composure, school was immediately dismissed and school was out during the entire time of Kennedy's funeral etc. After I graduated, I from time to time would think about Braulio Alonso and wondered what had happened to him. That is my memory from my high school days. I have always remained in Tampa. From what I read he was a great person of many accomplishments. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
