My thoughts and prayers go to the family of Ms. Casey.
She was an inspirational and compassionate teacher who made all of her students feel special. I was her student over 30 years ago - but I still remember my final exam in English. Ms. Casey challenged our boundaries and stretched our minds to be creative. I would not have become a writer without her continued support.
She was loved by so many of her students. We will miss her laughter and her sharp wit.
She's with Oscar Wilde, Dylan Thomas, James Joyce and James Kantor. She will be well looked after in Heaven.
