Hi, I’m Vanessa. I met Kerry in the beginning of my eighth grade year. He was my testmagic English teacher, and he practically lived through my eighth grade year with me. Every week I told him what i was up to, and he told me a little about himself. The hour that we shared each week was sometimes the highlight of my week. Kerry easily made me laugh, and his complete attention on me when we talked made me feel whole and complete. It might sound like a cliche, but Kerry was really there for me. I remember when i was stressing over a research paper i had to write, Kerry gave me hints and tips on how to start one, and how to go about writing one. He even edited the product, and asked for a final paper once i was all done. I am so glad i shared part of my life with Kerry. He wasn’t caring and extremely supportive only during class, but whenever i stopped by testMagic, whether it was dropping off my younger brother, or delivering a check. I miss Kerry and was in a state of shock when i heard of his death. He was like a big brother to me, and I will never forget him. He has made a big impact on me.
