Tommy, Mark, Patty and Mary--
Sorry to hear of the passing of a very caring and very funny man! I can still see him zipping back and forth in front of the chalkboard, balancing chemical equations, producing the answer with a triumphant " Moth-ah, look at me now!" Beyond the showmanship that went into his teaching, his tests (no fill-ins or multple choice) showed an expectation that you either knew it or you didn't, but he'd provide every opportunity for needed help.
Loved the great theological "debates" he and Hollis would have at church coffee hours.They produced both great ponderings and great laughter.
Glad you could keep him at home It's a tough road, but a blessed one, when it can be done!
