Today my heart is saddened I was a student of his 4th grade class in 1991 at St.Lucie elementary in Fort Pierce. He was my favorite teacher! That one teacher you never forget. He loved directing our little band with that famous whistle. And he loved reading his favorite book Heidi out loud to the class.I had been searching for him to meet up since I was his favorite student. I am sad I can't tell him how great an impact he had in my life. RIP Mr. Pratley
