My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to you Ron and your family. My brother Raye speaks of your fondness for your dad often and the similarities between your dad and ours both born on 9/28. One in 16 one in 18. Both educators, Army men and Aggies! What a legacy you have to enjoy. How blessed you are to have had his love and guidance or 97 years. Incredible!

Sorry to hear about the passing of my agricultural teacher from Peabody High School. I graduated from that school in 1958. He taught the class "New Farmers of America" and most of the information I have used in my own life and many of my sermons go back to what I learned and applied from his classes. He was a great teacher and I will never forget him. My heartfelt codolences to his family. God bless you all and give you strength at this time.
My sincere sympathy, Bishop Colon Haywood Sr., New Haven, CT
