Monday-Tuesday, December 3-4, 2007

To all my wonderful students,

My dad past away last night (Dec 2). This was the longest and most difficult day of my life. Thanks to you all for your support and love...the emails and the concern. You are the greatest ever!

Today, you'll be using a cool program called Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. Please respect my wishes today by completing the assignment...respect the sub and have a great week. I'll be out this week...I'll be planning the funeral and spending time with family.

While you're at it this week, tell someone you care about that you love them. You never know when they're going to leave. Remember me and my family in your prayers.

My best to you all! See you soon.
Mr. Aguda
