Thank you from Eileen Tepatti

It’s hard to know where to begin, so I will start from the bottom of my heart.  A sincere thank you to everybody for their expressions of sympathy to me and my family over the death of my brother, Jerry Melton.  It was a very difficult situation for his immediate family, mother, siblings, friends, colleagues, and students.  Whether you sent a card or email, stopped me in the hallway to say a kind word, attended the memorial service, sent a flower, plant, or remembrance, or offered up a quiet thought or prayer … I want you all to know how much your thoughtfulness is appreciated.  Thank you so much.
