Mr. Griffin was a wonderful teacher, and a very kind man. He will be missed.

Mr. Griffin ( which was the way I was told to address you when I began teaching at BHS in 1979), you were such a delight to know and work with. You tried so hard to keep me in line. Alas! It didn't work!. I'm sure you're getting those Souls in Glory to sing on-key and to "enunciate!!!" Thanks, Al David, you were such a delight!

I only just heard of Mr. Griffin's passing and it broke my heart. I know we have to evolve and move on to make room for the new. However, it is always hard to see someone leave that brings so much love, beauty and life to the world. "Allen David" as my sister and I would call him was/is one of the best teachers I ever had. He did not just teach Literature he taught us very important life skills. One day when our Sr English class was being especially obnoxious he stared at each student until they simply shut up. Once the class was quiet he stood up and wrote across the board, in his beautiful handwriting the word "Understanding". Then he said, "Once you learn the meaning of this word and how to employ it, you will hold the secret to all life in your hands!" Gosh I always did and always will love him. Thank for giving a place to remember him...my prayers are with him and his family.

I learned so much in Mr. Griffin's class and went on to HPU and majored in art and English. I returned to Boswell as a substitute and was assigned a junior English class. 'Al David' approached me and said I was giving too many A's to the students writing their junior themes!...loved that guy!
