    There are no words to say how sorry I am. However, I do have a story that I do want to share. While working in Mart, I had several different classes but did not actually teach Jacob. He would come into my class because he didn’t have any other place to go and hang out until football practice. He would enter my class, grab a coloring book or a sketchbook and go sit in the back row and quietly draw or color. One day, he decided that he was going to draw portraits of everyone in the class. So, once he was done, he asked if he could present them and of course, I said, “Yes!” We have never laughed so hard, he was so entertaining and such a good sport. I will forever miss that face and that kid that I called “noodlehead” because of that hairstyle that he rocked during my time at Mart. Rest easy kiddo until I see you again.~~Always Coach Connally
