Some are excellent communicators, yet they lack the conviction to keep their feet on the ground. Others embrace deep convictions, but can't communicate with excellence, so they never soar in the stratosphere of influence. R.G. Puckett was an excellent communicator with clear convictions. Anyone who could convince me there was no place in the world, better than being in his Campbell classroom on a crisp, fall morning was both optimistic and inspiring!
You labored well, 'Prof'. My deepest sympathies to the Puckett family.
