Congrats on your build and your 10 year stint in the Marines. Many folks have a hard time finding anything good in their lives these days. You are truly blessed to have family and friends and your project and your service. Thank you for your service and Happy Memorial to you. AZ

I was fatherless and motherless during my formative years and one of my teachers took me under his wing and became one of my favorite and most influencial people in my life. He didn't do anything special for me, but accept me for who I was. It was my family that was all messed up, NOT ME. He taught me biology, chemistry about hot rods and muscle cars. And he made me feel like I mattered to at least ONE PERSON. His interest in me motivated me to try to do my best and emulate him in his thoughts deeds and manners.

Our paths crossed after school many many years later when he was part of a blue grass band playing at a picnic celebrating the birthday of a very distant relative.

That was our last meeting and I happened upon a marker one day while hiking and it was a welcome to the Donald Willinger Park. This teacher had purchased and donated at the time of his death a section of woods and hiking trails for US to enjoy even though he no longer could. I fell to my knees and thanked God for all this man did for me. The small things he taight me, made a huge difference in my life. As I sit here now at almost 70, and think about my heroes, Mr. WIttlinger is among the top.

Thank God for placing Mr. Wittlinger in my path. I hope and pray teachers may not always realize it, but many eyes are upon them. Always be a hero, you never know who is watching, learning, and ultimately loving you not for what you teach, but who you are as a person. Lots of lost kids, like me, looking for heroes. YOU ARE ONE.
