Eulogy for Deborah Jean Stafford

Eulogy for Deborah Jean Stafford

A Story by temoralez

This is my own personal eulogy for my high school librarian Ms. Deborah J. Stafford.


I write this work to honor my former high school librarian and friend, Ms. Deborah J. Stafford. She is not forgotten.


I remember her as my high school librarian, but she was also a writer. I remember she came to nearly every meeting we had for Writers Group. She wrote a few things for us to read, but she also gave us helpful and encouraging feedback about our writings. She was always willing to help students. I believe she loved working with us students by helping and guiding us in any way she could. I will be honest in the fact that I didn't know Ms. Stafford very well, but I did know her. I remember how I learned about her passing from this world through a person's post on facebook. What shocks me the most was how disconnected from my fellow writers I had become. If there is something I've learned is to keep in touch with your fellow writers as well as your friends. Thank you for everything you've done for us, Ms. Stafford.


Rest in Peace

I remember her. She fed my love of writing and history and told me to go for it. Do you remeber that class paper I wrote about time in the form of a short story with two Celtic imortals watching history pass in one spot? It was called "Vercovicium" and it's still one of my fovorites. I remember her being so proud of it that she wanted me to continue the story and make it a book. She gave me a book to help me and I still have it. It's sad when think about it. A truely great person is gone from the world and all that is left is memories, one old book, and the people she inspired along the way. We will all make her proud.
