    You died more than four years ago. I wasn’t quite in high school. Now I’m in college, and I really wish you were here. I have so much I wish I could thank you in person for. You’re the reason I’m deciding to become a teacher.
    Everything I’ve done has been to make you proud. I would hate to disappoint you. You were my favorite teacher.
    My roommate and her friend had your mom as a teacher in high school, and they started talking about her yesterday. I thought of you and almost cried. I feel so stupid. It’s been so long, but I still occasionally cry about your death. I know you wouldn’t want me to be sad, but I can’t help it sometimes.
    Your parents have written me two letters since you died. I wish I would have brought them to school this quarter. I read them whenever I need inspiration.
    I’m so scared I’ll forget about you. I never want to forget.
    Thanks for being such a huge influence on my life. I’m still convinced I was your favorite student. Hopefully I’ve made you proud and I continue to do so.
