Our sympathy to the Mel Root family~from Judy McCoy-Lindauer, Class of 1964, Homer High School, Homer, IL and Mark Lindauer, Class of 1968 Buckley-Loda, IL via Rantoul High School, Rantoul, IL. Mel Root was a wonderful person, teacher, coach and administrator. I found it interesting that later in life I married a young man who also had Mel Root as his teacher, coach and administrator when they were both at Rantoul High School. It truly is a small world. God's blessings to all of you.
