My sympathy to the Root family. Mr & Mrs Root were two of my teachers at Homer High School, Homer IL. Memories range from the laughter of watching him get locked on the gym balcony at lunch and him checking a locker that dumped empty milk cartons at the end of the school year to seeing the touching comfort he gave his wife when we all learned of the death of JFK. Mel Root also gave me more useful education than either of us realized at the time when he had me help in the school office instead of idling in study halls. The photo in this Guest Book of the two of them shows him standing in a very familiar pose. We all saw it often at ballgames, in hallways, and in classrooms. He was a very special and good-hearted person.

God is truly lucky to have such a fine man with him now. We will miss him greatly here on earth
