Dear Barrett,

I met you as a speaker in your EN 9 class. My clearest impression of you is your devotion to your students and deep interest in them. Your interest and caring for them was reciprocated. There can't be many who teach at the university level who are as well loved.

There was a testimonial dinner for you in New York City nearly five years ago. My daughter (class of '93) insisted on attending because of her deep affection for you. Shortly after I dropped her off at her apartment after the dinner, she went to the hospital and had her first child. That tells it all.
