My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Mr. Godbee was a fair and honest principal. He was stern but you could see the twinkle in his eye, as he stood in the halls of S.E.B. Quietly watching and listening to everything that was going on. He loving earned the name of The Hawk. You will always be lovingly remembered. I had my day in your office as I accounted for a fight. I explained why I had to fight back. I explained to you that sometimes you have to stand up for yourself when you are bullied. You shook your head yes. You smiled and told me to go back to class. From that day on you had my respect. It wasn't given with a stern talk or raising your voice. You simply acknowledged that indeed you do have to stand up for yourself at times. Go rest high on that mountain. Your work here is done.
