I am so very sorry for your loss. Mr.Cloud was my teacher in 1970-72. He was the most caring teacher I’ve had. He went way beyond the expectations of a good teacher. At the time I had a severe hearing loss. To make certain I understood his lectures, he wrote them out and put them on the overhead projector. It was a huge amount of work. It says a great deal about the character of this fine man. I am blessed and grateful to known him.

Jay, I was in the class of '77 and I remember you. We all knew, because that is when your curmudgeon of a dad and teacher became a; smiling, waving (Drove a bus), spring in his step, less pop quizzes kind of happier man. Don't get me wrong, he was still a tough teacher and probably prepared me for college more than any other teacher, but he was forever changed after becoming a dad. Please accept my sincerest condolences. Mr. Cloud was a great teacher and also a great person and it was a privilege to know him. A library has burned with his passing.

We will be known forever by the tracks we leave -- Dakota proverb.
