Good memories of Rip go back through the years. May he rest in peace and may his family find comfort in their memories and in their faith.
This is not what I wanted to see when I read the paper this morning. My heart is sad to read about Mr. Monroe. Even though 43 years have passed he still holds a special place in my book of my most treasured memories. He was the kind of teacher this world needs more of and going to his class was something I always looked forward to. I would randomly call and check and him and Betty and the last time I talked to him we were suppose to have gotten a few of the old classmates together and have a glass of tea with him. I'm just sorry we never made that happen. He was a good man and never failed to make you laugh and he is someone I will treasure always. I am so sorry for your loss and please know you're in my thoughts and prayers.
