Dear Menzel Family, Please accept my sincere sympathy. I am a former student of "Mr. Menzel" from Thompson School in St.Francis. He was a wonderful teacher and role model. He was a bit younger back then(1973-74):) caring and so enthusiastic about teaching! He was very instrumental in my decision to become a physical education teacher. Again please accept my deepest sympathy. I will keep Mr.Menzel and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Chris(Gavin)Crain
