“My deepest sympathies to your family. Mr Yelnek was one of my favorite teachers at Indian Hill. I would go visit him even after I left Indian Hill. He came to my wedding(actually 2 of them). He would tease me and get such a kick out of it. You were not just a teacher but a kind and selfless person. You will be missed. RIP James R. Yelnek.
