est in peace. I enjoyed your English class at Aiken High and remember you bringing in Gullah records for us to listen to. What a treat. I also remember that I did a lot of talking in that class and I want to apologize for making it harder on you to teach. I do not remember you fussing at me even though I deserved it. I taught for 27 1/2 years and I understand how tough it is to be a teacher. Loved every minute of it though. Thank you for being a good memory in my life. Bless your family.
