Mr. Pfeiffer, I read about the passing of your wife. I see she was a nurse (what a fulfilling career), and that she loved to travel in her later years. I hope you were able to share those exciting memories with her, and are able to reflect on those during this time of grief.

I was in your 9th grade homeroom and had you for math.
