Dear Cudworth Family, May the grief of your loss be tempered by the assurance that you still have a husband and father who is at home with his Heavenly Father. God's blessings, Matt Beyersdorf (a school mate of John and Karen's at Bethany Evangelical Lutheran School)

To the Family of Prof. Cudworth: I wanted all of you to know how much I enjoyed him as a teacher! (I'm from the Class of 1983) He made our history classes very enjoyable, especially for those of us that didn't care for history class. I remember one particular time when he said (in a funny voice) that "little missy" (meaning me) stepped off the Mayflower, and Chad here saw her and there was a gleam in his eye! Little did Prof. Cudworth know that a couple days before that, Chad and I had just broken up! We laughed so hard about that. My condolences to all of you. Please know that he left a lasting impression on this student of his. I will always remember him! Julie (Lier) Lightfoot

As I sit writing this, in the same room he shared in our house for many years, I am thankful for Mr Cudworth was my god parent. It seemed that I had another uncle to learn from. I was much too young to really know him as many students did, but there were many things that did rub off. He had an infectous laugh, that I always wanted to know what was going on when he was in happy tears. Irene, I also feel blessed that you were my first teacher and was connected to our family. I know that you will be saddened now, but will rejoin him with unrealized Joy in the future. For you, John and Karen, what a blessing we all had with your father in our lives. He was surely a part of God's bigger plan. God's Peace to all.

I was so sorry to hear that Prof. Cudworth has passed away. I have many fond memories of being in his classroom. I pray that God sends you peace in the assurance that you will see each other again in heaven. He was such a gift to MLS and will not soon be forgotten.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was not looking forward to Econ and American Government in the fall of 1969 at MLS. Professor Cudworth changed that in the first few weeks of class. I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching, the content he taught, and him as a person. I still use many of his concept teaching techniques in my teaching today. Professor Cudworth touched the future including eternity with his teaching! He touched me.

As a former student at MLS I treasure the lifelong love of history that was instilled in me by Professor Cudworth. May Christ's promise of a blessed reunion in heaven cradle you in this time of loss. Jesus lives! And so will we!

Dear Mrs. Cudworth, Karen and John – Prof. Cudworth was a wonderful history teacher that had such enthusiasm for what he taught and he made learning fun. His love for the Lord and his faith was evident. I was truly blessed to have had him as a professor at MLS. Karen & John, I have a lot of good memories about choir night when we were little and he directed the choir and we “ran the halls” at St. John’s in Saginaw, MI. May you be comforted in knowing that he is resting in Jesus’ arms and in eternal glory and you will one day be reunited. God bless you.

Mrs. Cudworth, Professor Cudworth was my US History teacher while I was at Michigan Lutheran Seminary. Not only did he share his knowlege and love of history with us, he taught me how to teach with enthusiasm. God has blessed many people through Professor Cudworth's love for teaching, his love for his students, and his love for the Lord. May God bless you as you miss him!
Joanie (Carter) Arndt left a message on April 6, 2009:
Dear Cudworth Family, I just received word through my sister Betty Manske of Prof. Cudworth's passing. I rejoice with you for the many years of grace given to him and also(as my preschoolers would say)that he knew that "Jesus took away his sins so that he can go to heaven." Prof. Cudworth taught my favorite subject, history, and made me love it even more. He made us work hard for the grades we received and I did not mind one bit. In Christian sympathy and joy, Joanie(Carter) Arndt MLS Class of 1985

Dear Mrs. Cudworth, I just received the news that Prof. Cudworth passed away. I am sorry for your earthly loss but am thankful to the Lord for Professor's faith. What a joy to know that you have a future eternal reunion in heaven. In the obituary, I came across something surprising. I have met your daughter Karen, after all these years. (Cindy Moll & I were one of four that stayed in your upstairs our senior year at MLS - 1974-75.) I didn't know until I read the obituary that she must be your daughter. Dennis is on the Board of Regents for WLC and that is how we have met them both! What a coincidence. Dennis has just celebrated 25 years in the ministry. We are in Grand Blanc, MI. We have 5 daughters. Four are married. Our two oldest have little boys and live in WI. Our oldest is also expecting twins in November. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. In Christian sympathy, Dennis & Kay Himm
