Mr Pulicicchio was a most caring and helpful teacher. He believed in me when no one else did, he was always eager to help you up when you were down on yourself, and listen to you when things seemed overwhelming. He loved his family and was always proud of his children, often times sharing stories about them in class. He had an infectious laugh, a kind spirit and a good heart. He drove hours and hours with many a student around the Fife valley, sometimes applying the brakes when we thought it wasn't necessary, but he knew it was. I have often thought about him as I have gotten older, and many times wondered if he really knew the impact he had made on so many lives. As teenagers we all thought we were invincible and he always grounded us to the realities of life. I wish I had told him these things many years ago instead of writing them now - life is a series of 'hellos' and 'good byes', and too often we don't get a second chance at the good byes. Blessings and Prayers to all the Pulicicchio Family, please know I have always thought of your Father, Husband, Grandfather as a true jewel from my past.
