I was so fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach with Dr. Brady at both Rogers High School and at NWACC. We both had an 8 AM class at NWACC and often took the time to chat before class since we both arrived early. I cherished that time with Homer! He was a dear friend, as was Betty. I will be thinking of you, Pam and Tom.
