I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. You probably do not remember me, but I had John as a student, as well as Jill. John was always such a kind, hard-working, nice young man. I enjoyed having him in my class. His picture looked just like I remembered him. I hope that all of the fond memories you have of times shared with John will help fill the space that he has left behind. Jill, I hope that you are doing fine and having a good and happy life. You were another great student to have in class. My thoughts are with all of you. I'm sorry that I couldn't deliver this message in person this evening. Sincerely, Lu Schmidt Winckler -3rd grade teacher
