    Mr Moose. I had no idea you had passed away until just now. I am so sorry to his family. And I am really sorry for giving you so much grief in school I apologize!!! I have really had you laying on my mind lately and me feeling like I needed to apologize because I was a brat and disrespectful and I’m sorry for that and now I know that you’re passed away and I only pray that you forgive all of the students that were mean and cruel when you taught us in School
    . I loved your ice cream days and because u we’re tough back to me and made me learn Math. I have had alot of accomplishment due to you . So thank you for that as well. Rest in peace Mr .Moose
