Mary and family,

Mr. Poe was one of the best teachers I ever had. I have several fun memories of him while we were driving around in that station wagon driver's ed car. He was always fun and had a great sense of humor. He was a great man and I know he will be missed.

Mr. Poe was always such a gentle, patient teacher with a great sense of humor. What an incredible impression he made on generations of Woodbine students! His life of service is a testament to his sterling character. He leaves a wonderful legacy of having bettered the lives of everyone who had the privilege of having met him. My sympathies to you all!

Max was such a good friend - working with him at the Woodbine School and having coffee with him and Mary at Casey's. He sang at my son Mike's and my husband's funerals. My sympathy to all of you.

Love, Corlys
