Not sure what to say?

Mr."B" was my favorite teacher during my years at STA. He made history interesting, and he had a great sense of humor (like assigning ethnic backgrounds to students based on their last names). He was my Coach on the golf team also. I wish I had been able to see him more after my STA graduation.

Dear Simone and you three "icky" girls and families,

Loved you all for so many years. I just heard today and am immediately writing. I am so very saddened with the loss of your husband, Simone, and your father and grandfather. My "little sister Anne"baby sat you all after I was your sitter and then off to college! How I loved being at your home, feeling the warmth and love of your family; playing with you and reading bedtime stories! My heart aches for you...

Emilie & family,
Sending you strength and think of you often.
Much love from your former co-worker

Whenever I recollect about Mr. Belliveau, a smile invariably comes across my face. What a great man. He was the face of St. Thomas Acquinas for many years.

Mr. Jean Beliveau was my football and basketball coach. He was great at both.

Warm regards to the family.

As a member of some of the early STA football teams I remember the year Coach Beliveau arrived at STA. Everyone wondered what type of coach the new, and very young, guy was going to be. Turned out there were no worries. He had no ego, no need to impress no macho image to live up to. He just wanted to make sure you played, and ultimately lived, up to your potential. RIP coach.

In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else.

One of the best.

I remember Gene as a great guy and a wonderful example for our young students. Gene was just " fun" to be around. The world is less without Gene this morning, but then again guys like Gene don't die as much as they simply leave a legacy.

"Cut De Gras" and "Moe De Lawn", I was introduced to more than these rumored heroes in Mr. Beliveau's class. A gifted storyteller, he made history come alive for me and ignited a love of American History that still burns in me today. His was the first class at STA where I felt like I was being treated as an adult, given complex concepts to consider and challenged to develop my own opinion of world affairs. Although the pages of his notes may have been a bit stiff, his...
