David is a superb teacher and compassionate grader. Why do I say that? He knew instinctively that I was struggling in his property class freshman year. He told me not to worry, saying some students don’t get it right away, some take until Christmas, and some even to Easter. I was the Easter Bunny. I barely got by property thanks to David’s allowing me to pass by the narrowest margin which gave me the chance to catch-on and pass on to the next year, again by a hair. I did relatively well the next two years thanks in large measure to David. He was and is a Saint and I shall always remember him as the person most responsible for making it through.
Sincerely, Dick Platt ’71
