    It breaks my heart to know that you have left this earth before we all had a chance to make things right. I will grieve forever that I never had the chance to ask you one simple question; Why? My sympathies are with your family, and that includes all of us.

  2. I am greatly pained by this news. The roll that this man played in my life, though shorter than it should have been, was impressionable. It was always my wish to see him one more time, I now grieve that this will never be.

    I got from dad a love of words and a deep appreciation for education. I loved his laugh. To this day I cannot go past the smell of Old Spice without thinking of him. I am sorry he never made it to Vermont to visit us here.
