    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Herr Wood. He was such an incredible teacher that pushed his students and encouraged us to do more and to be more. I was so grateful for his efforts in helping me to LOVE the German language! My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Susan (who I remember him always talking about so proudly and lovingly in class) and their children and grandchildren.
