I was so very sad to learn of Marjorie's passing almost one year ago. I have been searching for her for several years, a search I renewed today when I came across a letter she had written to me in May 1990, from Swaziland. She was my most beloved teacher and I will be forever grateful for her encouragement and love. If Jennifer or Justin will contact me, I would be happy to share your Mom's letter describing life when you all were in South Africa. She was my treasure and I think of her so often.

Marj and I were part of a United Methodist short term group in 1958. We went to Southern Rhodesia/Zimbabwe to teach English in a high school. A beautiful, vibrant person who taught me to enjoy life a little more. She was the instigator of many adventures. I was the introvert but I at least could tell directions. I am so sad to here of Marjorie's death some months later. May she rest in joy.

Dr. Westberry was my professor for two American literature classes in the 90's. What a beautiful person she was - both inside and out! I absolutely adored her! To this day, she remains one of the kindest and most intelligent people I've ever known. She was a real class-act with a great heart! She made the world a better place and will be missed dearly.

With deepest sympathy to the family of Dr. Westberry. I knew her as Dr. Schuchat and the words below are in her memory. Each of you are in my prayers.

Dear Dr. Schuchat,

As a student attending Brookhaven College in the early 80's, I was enrolled in several courses you taught. At that time, I'd never had a teacher believe in my abilities as a student like you did.

You skillfully created opportunities within your teaching for student successes to occur; my self-confidence increased.

You taught me to research and discover truth always; to be prepared always; and to never be afraid ever.

You achieved a high standard of teaching with your content delivery, high expectations, compassion and appreciation for all students.

You had a talent for teaching that was simply "the best of the best".

Some 20 years ago I moved away from Dallas, but recently returned with a career of student affairs experience within higher education.

So, with words of great appreciation that I wished I'd had the opportunity to share with you in person: Thank you. Thank you for being one of my most outstanding, life-changing teachers and believing in my abilities.

Thank you for teaching me about Benjamin Franklin's Daily Schedule. To this day I ask myself: What good shall I do today?, and What good have I done today? when I work with students and staff in a college setting.

Thank you for impacting my life.
