Re: “Obituary: Jasen Morin, 1974-2017

I sometimes read about a Person of Interest who has moved on to another place,, different than here, but I know not where,, Many of the People who have blessed my life are no long Here, but now are there,,,Reading this excellent memory of a Friend by a Friend, for Friends and Family, and strangers like me,, I am Moved, and am using this Memorial for Memories of My,, I Thank You for these words you shared, and of the Person Jason Morin,, I am Grateful for People Like this,, who shared Love and Acceptance, so easy, when this world seems to ignore these actions and this behavior,,

Re: “Obituary: Jasen Morin, 1974-2017

We've started a gofundme to defray the costs of *All the Things* for Jasen's Celebration of Life.
This fund will also offset travel expenses for some of Jasen's dearest friends to ensure they can be there. I'd hate to see anyone miss Jasen's services due to financial strain- and hope we can all raise the funds to Get Them There!

Re: “Obituary: Kelly King, 1960-2017

The portrait of Kelly says it all. Full of life, intense, connected. Many, many people lost a friend. Hard to fathom that such a bubbling source of life is cut short.

Re: “Obituary: Michele Vickers Forman, 1946-2017

I'm so sorry to hear this. Michele was one of the ground floor teachers who really started the AP World History program. She was my first table leader at the reading, and I have always appreciated her knowledge, but also her patience with me as I learned how the system works. She was a wonderful part of our world history community.

Re: “Obituary: Michele Vickers Forman, 1946-2017

Michele was an extraordinary world history educator who was an inspiration for us all in the classroom and in professional development, as well as in scholarly endeavors. I was energized by both her commitment to students, as well as by her belief that teachers are scholars in their own right. She was a dear friend whose global vision has touched thousands and has made the world a more tolerant, better place. She will be missed. My deepest condolences to her family, former students, and friends who will miss her wit, her intellect, and her compassion.

Re: “Obituary: Michele Vickers Forman, 1946-2017

Michele managed to build a relationship with you in a very short period of time. She had to ability to see the best in you, as well as hold you accountable to the person you could and should be. I will always remember a singular conversation with Michele 16 years ago - one that made me see possibilities beyond my current reality. I have her to thank for an important decision in my teaching career that helped me sustain my passion as an educator. Michele had a true calling in education. Middlebury was so fortunate to have her for those 29 years. My condolences to her family and friends. She will be remembered.

Re: “Obituary: Michele Vickers Forman, 1946-2017

As Michele's scheduler/events coordinator during her formal year as 2001 National Teacher of the Year, I witnessed people and organizations across the spectrum of U.S. and international groups marvel at her talents. It was so well-deserved. She was the epitome of the phrase "smart as a whip." Equally, she carried herself so well as both a representative of passionate, innovative teaching and as a policy leader/influencer in the field, both as Vermont Teacher of the Year and the national position. Her accomplishments across all of her important endeavors will be highly regarded and serve as professional models for years to come. My thoughts are so much with Dick and the family at this sad time.

I'm so very sorry to read this. Michelle was such a wonderful model for teachers in Vermont, and so committed to social action. I am glad to have known her, albeit only professionally. My condolences to the family and the Middlebury community.

Re: “Obituary: David Powers, 1973-2017

Dave was one of my closest friends in middle school and we remained friends through HS. I always felt a kinship with him even though our worlds diverged as we got older. His artistic talent and intellectual perspective always amazed me and I remember many philosophical discussions while riding our bikes and skateboards. He and I didn't always agree on things but I always felt he respected me. The feeling was mutual. Though we have been out of contact for many years, I will miss him and cherish my memories of him. ~Steve Tomczak
