I was sorry to hear of Mr. Hawk's passing.  He was my band instructor at Simpson Street School during my Junior High School years.  He was a wonderful person and teacher, always smiling and interested in talking with you.  He will be missed.  You have my deepest sympathy.

My deepest sympathy to Susie and her sisters. I have warm loving memories of your family and they will always remain in my heart. May your own memories fill you with love and joy as well as comfort you during this time. Peace be with you.

It is with deep sadness that I receive the news about Dick.  I was fortunate to not only have him as a teacher, but to teach with him for several years at Mechanicsburg Middle School.  We shared a lot of laughs and I affectionately referred to him as "the old sea cook".  Those of you who knew him would appreciated that.  Well, The Old Sea Cook is now on a new journey to be reunited with Vanda.  I love both of them dearly and miss our fun times together.

Please accept  my deep sympathy in the loss of your wonderful father.  He shared his gift of music with me and was my flute teacher for many years.  His smile was always welcoming and encouraged us to succeed.  My thoughts and prayers are with you in your grief and in celebrating his life!
