Gone but not forgotten--so not gone!

It's taken me quite some time to read this article, as I have avoided it since the dark day took place. Dr Pelz was more than an educator and mentor, he was a dear friend for whom I will always remember. As a 37 year old student, working father of 2 kids, and husband, I had the fortune of a longer than most community college journey, 4 years to be exact, in which I took 9 of Dr Pelz's courses, some of which were at his request, which was a great honor for me. I am truly enlightened by his teachings and of his humbleness, and living proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Thank you for the memories, thank you for the lessons, but most importantly thank you for always having open doors and for befriending me. I will never forget you my dear friend and comrade.
