"Mr. Jipping, I have thought of you many times throughout the years. You were one of my favorite teachers at Southwest Christian. You separated my geometry class into two cohorts because mine was slower in grasping concepts. I've always admired you for being so innovative back in 1964. I now realize how young you were when you taught me! I am so sorry for the loss of your wife of sixty-two years; may the love of your family and friends sustain you during this difficult time."
