A Lasting Legacy of Love
Rick Fleck has written a tribute in honor of his mother Alcyon. Her passing has left an ache in the heart of the entire ICC family. Here are the opening paragraphs of Rick’s tribute:

“ICC has lost its founder, Alcyon Fleck, who was also my mother. After a short illness, Alcyon passed to her rest on May 25. We mourn her passing, but we also celebrate her life, for she leaves behind a lasting legacy of love.

“I’d like to take a moment to tell you a little about her—and about the role you played in her life.

“From her early childhood, Alcyon had an interest in helping orphan children. She eagerly followed the antics of the little cartoon character, Orphan Annie, and this made a deep impression on her. Even at a young age she felt drawn to help orphan children…”

Facebook Tributes For Alcyon
In response to the news of Alcyon's passing, these are but a few of the messages that have been received by ICC through posts and messages on Facebook.

“We are sure she will inherit the kingdom of God, as she had lived for Jesus and done the best for His precious children. In honor of her, we will try to do our best to carry on the task she started that we may meet her in the new earth to come.”
David — ICC administrator

“How sad to learn of the loss of my mother, my Mommy Fleck. Oh how much I loved her, and she knew it! Thank God for that Angel who gave us life… What we are today we owe to that beautiful family which forged values and principles within us for eternity.”
From one of “His Kids”

“I love you Mommy, you who are everything, and thanks for helping all of us from the children's village. You and you alone are our heroine most loved in this world.”
From one of “His Kids”

“A person filled with love, generosity and service. Mommy Fleck always gave love in our lives. We carry her in our heart, but we realize that we will see her in Heaven together—the family that we are.”
From one of “His Kids”

“The feeling of all of us who were impacted by the unconditional service of Mommy Fleck is the same, sadness. But we know she rests in peace. I wish I would have been able to tell her personally, ‘Thanks for changing my life.’”
From one of “His Kids”

ICC Logo None of this work would be possible without those who have committed their efforts to saving and changing the lives of “His Kids.” The children of ICC want to thank you from the bottom of their hearts for making a difference in their lives.

Occasionally when we call for funds for a specific need we receive more in donations than we requested. In those instances when we have received more money than we solicited, those funds will be placed in “Alcyon’s Angel Fund.”
