RIP Linda Moore

I attended Heidelberg High School in Germany for three of my four years of high school, and there were two teachers there that really had an impact on my life. Wanda McCollar and Linda Moore both really encouraged my creativity and writing, and gave me the confidence I needed to share my talent. I'm not sure they remember me (it was 35 years ago and they must have taught thousands of students), but I sure remember them. I'm thinking of them today because I just found out that Mrs. Moore died last week. I never got to thank her for all she did for me. I honestly don't think I would have become a professional writer without her contributions. RIP Mrs. Moore. You touched more lives than you ever knew.
