Hi Miss Gill,
I was just thinking about the old days in West Warwick and St. Joseph School. I remembered Mr. Arundale as my favorite teacher of all time. I googled him only to see he passed away.
I am sorry to hear the news.
I am not sure if you remember Paul Cournoyer from RI. You were also my teacher at St. Joseph's, I believe 4th grade.
Again, I am so sorry to see my favorite teacher of all time passed.
Just FYI, I am a teacher in NH and have been for 30 yrs.
I wish you well Miss Gill.
