Mr. E. Higgs was a great source of inspiration and loyal friend and former educator who will be missed by all who knew him. I knew him from his Time at Oakenwald Elementary School from 1973 until it shuttered and briefly became Future Commons alternative H.S. I believe that he touched many lives and am confident and sure that his legacy will yet. Remain. Most sincerely,
