Norma, I know you are aware of the impact of your husband on his many students. Jodie and are are among those many. To put it simply, he pointed the way to openness in thinking and building of self-confidence. He impacted both of our lives greatly. We knew how much he loved you. We send you our deepest sympathies and hope that in time you will bask in all of the experiences you had together.

Dear Norma: My name is Grant Goodman (son of Joe and Sharon). I, as you may know, grew up just a block away from you and Clint. I had Clint in High School for English. I am currently writing this from where I work - at The Utah Shakespeare Festival. The reason I am here is because of Clint. The reason I have the profession I do, is because of Clint. He taught my English class sophomore year and he had his students memorize a couple of speeches from Shakespeare. I know not all of my classmates were thrilled about it, but it was a revelatory moment for me growing up. Clint's inspiration lit a fire within me that still burns. He got me excited about literature and drama - namely Shakespeare - and because of that spark he planted within me, I am now appearing in my 55th Shakespeare play. My folks phoned me this past Tuesday with the sad news of his passing and I carried him in my heart with me as I went onstage that night - as I have done every night since. In the years since High School I've thought often of Mr. McCord and his influence on me. He was one of my favorite teachers and he meant so much to me. Please know that he touched the lives of so many in such a fun and positive way. His classes were enlightening and his personality was positively infectious. My sincere condolences. Love and Blessings, Grant Goodman

Dear Mrs. McCord, I was also one of Mr. McCord's students. I had him for an instructor my Junior year in high school. The class was American Literature. I loved the class and him as well. While in his class, I learned that the great writers of the United States were wonderful and exciting people. His passion for great literature has been passed on to my students as well. My students love to have book discussions with me, where we discuss the flavor of the author and his/her passion. We talk about how a truly great author may even have incorrect speech when they are writing in order to achieve the true voice of the characters. Also his love for animals was something that I picked up on while in his class. I have always loved and cared about animals, however, while in his class I became an advocate for animals and their welfare. Thanks to him my youngest daughter is on her way to becoming a Wildlife Biologist, whose desire is to save endangered species and protect all animals. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You had an amazing husband. Respectfully, Katrina (Roth) Oberlies
