Dear John, Dolores...

I'm so sorry to hear that your mom is gone. Mrs. Moyles taught me more about acting than I ever learned at Carnegie Mellon. More importantly, she taught me how important it is to be a good person in this world. There are a whole lot of us out here trying to treat others well because of her love and guidance. I've missed her, and, now, I'll miss her even more, and that makes me sad. But, I know you are grieving, too. You should know that you're not the only ones to know how special she was. She taught me so much. God bless you and your families. This is a terrible time to lose someone so dear, but I hope that the warmth of the season helps you feel closer to her.

My wife and I will be making a donation to the John Moyles Scholarship Fund, in her name. Our deepest sympathies...

Dear Dolores and John,

My mother and I regret to hear of your mother's passing and would like to offer our sympathies. It is difficult to process and unfortunate in light of the holiday season. I am forever grateful of the impact you all, especially your mother, had on my life throughout high school. I admired her dedication and love for the Prep community, and I have the utmost respect for her and the positive impact she had on so many of her students. You and your family are in our prayers.

Best Wishes,
Richard and Dora Potter
