John Spencer Pink

I morn the loss of someone who has so greatly shaped who I am that I can very confidently say that I am a better person for getting to be his student.
Mr. Pink was our Art teacher at Washington High school in Cedar Rapids Iowa. It was Mr. Pink who set so many us children on a positive path and gave us the courage and belief in ourselves to do wonderful things.
Just goes to show... one Artist can make a monumental difference in the community and the world.
Thank you Mr. Pink... the sky is yours to dream in.

what we do, how we are will leave a mark. funny how we (I) sometimes forget that just about everything we (I) do has impact. on something. or someone.

condolences Zygote - and cheeriness to good solid memories.

None of us are self-made, are we, Zyg? It's good to acknowledge people who made you who you are.

Oh, that's so sad. I'm sorry for your loss. :(

I think it's wonderful that he requested that people plant a tree in his honor. :)

Thanks for posting. I was just fondly remembering Mr Pink and decided to look him up. We don't always get a chance to thank those people who contributed so much to our lives. He was a kind soul. Much love to you Mr. Pink.
