All, all for immortality,
Love like the light silently wrapping all.
My father, John S. Moseley (1947-1991) was an English teacher at Half Hollow Hills High School East from the autumn of 1970 until his tragic early death. He was beloved and esteemed by all who knew him. Over the years I have received a number of notes and emails from former students telling me how positively my father influenced their lives. I am always profoundly grateful for these messages. Now, one of his former students has chosen to honor him in a very special way: Ms. Jenny Lee has purchased a memorial bench at the Walt Whitman Birthplace to honor his memory. All his friends and former students are very welcome. The bench will be unveiled at a dedication ceremony. I will be reading several poems in honor of John Moseley. Please join us for refreshments, conversation and poetry.
