1) From: ginny
Ya know Tim,
I think you have a very good point.

2) From: Ruth Kohl
Why not leave the Traditions as is and have a special "Alfred Tradition" 
about this time each year to honor Alfred's memory. Just my 2 cents worth

3) From: Gary Bennett
As a relative newcomer to the list, this sounds the best way forward.
The 'tradition' is, well, traditional and the concept wouldn't need to
be explained as often as the 'Alfred'.
Regards, Gary

I'll be the first to admit that I don't have any right to say much -
I've won one tradition and am putting together one (hopefully for th
next week)....having said that, in my profession I run into things
"named after" or "given in memory" of people ALL the time.  The
concept always starts out wonderful, but as time passes it's usually
ends up being something that causes division.  I like the annual
"Alfred" tradition idea.  Regarding the rest, my 2 cents (and I'll
admit it may not be worth more than that) is to leave it as generic as

Excellent, Ruth.  A nice way to combine the two ideas.

That is not a bad one, and even more so, Alfred start a Tradition with his 
own flair - he passed on a Krups espress machine - HIS ONLY requirement was 
that it go to someone who needs it and that the machine continue on to 
someone else who needs it when the first person did not need it any 
more.  That is an Alfred Tradition IMO.
