Mr. Chadwick has been on my mind lately as I've found interest in sailing and perhaps creating my own sailboat. I had him as my teacher in 2000 and 2001, and to this day he's been my favorite teacher I've ever had. I've gone on to graduate from high school and college all the way through grad school, and being a teacher myself now, here and there I always think about how thankful I was for the in-between lessons Mr. Chadwick taught me in addition to skills regarding power equipment and woodworking.
I find myself regretting not appreciating his lessons more when I had the chance. I suppose this is a fitting entry since, ironically, I see he passed away 10 years ago to this date. I never had the chance to say bye to Mr. Chadwick as I'd already graduated from high school and lived in Orlando at the time of his passing, so I'd like to say thank you for everything you taught me, and eventually if I do built my boat, I'll be sure to give a creative hat tip to you, my friend. God bless you, and I hope somehow you're able to read this entry.
