He was a teacher that gave a poor student a break in life. I was the first one to graduate from a four year college on both sides of my family. We did not have a lot of money. So I had to work while going to school. I did not really know how to study and my skills were weak. But he believed in me and gave me a chance. I went on to develop the skills to graduate and become a teacher myself. If he had not given me his compassion for a student. I do not know how it would have ended. This was back in the sixties, before computers and copy machines. I thank him for his compassion and goodwill. Sorry for your loss. He was a good teacher and I shared the same compassion for my students. That he showed me.
