Thank you for the delightful story on Mr. Barlow (“One big day for lifetime of achievements,” June 3). Such a needed relief during these dreary times. I was privileged to have Earl Barlow as a teacher for my junior high education in Hot Springs, Montana, in the ’50s. He and his lovely wife, Arlene, were always available to the students and our parents.
Needless to say, he was our favorite teacher. After the Barlows retired in Spokane, we became friends again. They are an inspiration on elder living. They also are fun to reminisce with over “the good old days.”
