    Hello Cyril:

    I’m not sure you will remember me, but I was one of your teachers at Rutland Junior. I was sorry to read of your mother’s passing. I remember a very caring mother who always attended parent teacher interviews and shared her hopes for her son and her family. May you be strnegthend and comforted by the memory of her caring love.

    Cyril Chalk
