It is now fifty years since I was in Mr. Stanley's German class. The best teacher I have ever known, and my favorite teacher. I learned a lot from him. After I was out of school, we would sometimes see each other in town and always talk for a while, no longer as teacher and student (though he always corrected my mistakes when I spoke German), but as old friends. I shall miss him.
My sincere condolences to Mrs. Stanley and his sons.
