    Dear, Mr. Costin’s family

    I’m very sorry about your loss. Not only is it your loss, but it’s my loss too. He was my Math teacher last year in 7th grade at P.S. Jones Middle School and helped me pass my grade, AND get me moved up to 9th grade instead of going to 8th. I was very devastated when my friend told me he had passed away. I was crying so hard I couldn’t think straight, and I still do. But I would like to say i’m sorry again and he’s in a better place, with the Lord. May God Bless You, and be with you and your families during your good and bad times. He was a very good person and teacher. R.I.P Mr. Costin :-(
