I would like to commend Tori Dresch, a former pre-K student of mine at Our Lady Help of Christians in Marine Park, on her poignant tribute to firefighter Tim Klein, a former student in my St. Francis de Sales' Library Media Center class for a number of years. It was a pleasure to learn how two of my pupils, one from Brooklyn, and one from Queens, forged a long friendship here on the Rockaway peninsula, which began one summer working at The Silver Gull. Tori recognized the goodness, positive personality, and kind spirit of Tim. She noted how quickly he responded to those in need, at that time, and throughout his short life. It was truly an honor to have taught Tori, and her dear friend, Tim, our local hero, and role model.
