    You helped shape me into who I am today. I believe in myself because of you….and staying in the agriculture field :). You showed me I could do anything if I was willing to work for it. You inspired me to be better…..and probably many others as well. You will be missed.

    I never knew what I learned from you until I got older. Now that I have been through college and have made it out in the real world I still think about all the things you used to tell us and they all make sense now. I will never forget some of the lessons I learned from you. Thank you Mr. H :)
