25: There are no words to match my gratitude, However much like Shakespeare I might write. Above all else, you've shaped my attitude, Nurturing me with discipline and light. Knowledge is the least of what you taught, Yet that least at least prepared my head. Out of your heart I've learned the things I ought, Underscoring words you never said. Love, Liam

31: Teachers Paint their minds And guide their thoughts, Share their achievements and advise their faults. Inspire a Love Of knowledge and truth, As you light the path Which leads our youth. For our future brightens With each lesson you teach, Each smile you lengthen Each goal you help reach. For the dawn of each poet Each philospher and king, Begins with a Teacher And the wisdom they bring. By Kevin William Huff
32: Goodnight Mrs. Wilmot and Mrs. Parrish; we'll see you in our dreams....
