Thank you, Mr. Harris. You

Thank you, Mr. Harris. You made my senior year so much fun, yet you were serious about academics. Thank you for helping me pull a prank on Malcom and Marvin! Best time I have ever had and also for making the Senior play so much fun. You will be missed. And I graduated in 1958 and still remember the great times at Armuchee Elementary, Middle and High Schools.

What can be said about a man

What can be said about a man who challenged good students to be great students, no matter how hard the diifficulty of subject matter. I wish he would have talked about his military experiences in class, and I think we could have understood better why he was so demanding of his students, yet usually fair. I suppose rest in peace and see you later, is appropriate, since I cannot make the funeral.
