And then there was this:

Writing a column for so many years was such a fun part of my life, I was sad to see that draw to a close. This letter to the editor appeared a short time after the end of the column. Thank you, Mr. Gemberling, for your kind words, and for your service.

Wow, part of my heart and teaching soul immediately deflated when I read Rose Godfrey’s column will be “no more” in the Appeal-Democrat. (Education, Aug. 31, 2013, “Now we’re learning across America.”)

I have been reading Rose’s column faithfully since her early beginnings in 2006, assimilating and utilizing her teaching skills and methodology. Then later applying them into my own families’ circumstances when applicable as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

Her seemingly genuine and refreshing attitude towards teaching and her family life “trials and tribulations” was very gratifying and just plain good reading about good family life. Norman Rockwell and his “American Culture” paintings come to mind.

Our parting words to Rose and her family: Have a safe, happy, and adventuresome trip. We’ll keep the lights on for you. … As you will be truly missed by many.
