  17. To Mr. Lambert’s family, I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. He was my 7th grade science teacher in 1972. Through the years, I always planned to write him a letter to let him know the positive impact he had on my life. Of course life gets in the way and when I finally sat down to write that letter, instead of his mailing address I found his obituary. He was such genuine, kind and genuine soul. I am so sorry I waited to long to tell him what a difference he made in my life. I’m sure there are many other students who feel the same way. My heartfelt condolences to his family.
