    Sorry to hear this sad news, I remember Epp from school, He taught English when I was in 7th grade, I loved him as a teacher and had a secret crush on him, He was so handsome I guess all the girls had a crush on him. I had not heard anything of him in many years but thought of him often, Especially when I was reminded of a verb. Noun or pronouns.. He had a great influence on my life, as I am sure of all his students . Rest peacefully Mr Osborne. When I think of you, I always remember your smile, and kind gentle nature ..One of my very best teachers …
