We had some great times at work - We all will miss you just like our other brother.
You treated every kid in detention like they were your own and when the kids looked for peace, joy and understanding they looked for you. That made you the most valuable person on the team.
That is something that cannot be bought or taught and most important you kept the faith.

Sincerely,

The original crew of Detention.
