    Sorry to read of Mr Moir’s passing. He was a great teacher. He made a sometimes difficult geometry understandable for us math-challenged. Loved his Corvette. Note: He used to pay Garry Kausmyer $0.25 a day to watch over it when the elementary busses arrived @ the high school and transferred students at the end of the day. My condolences
