"Mr. Robert Ballinger it's been two years, I still can't believe you are not here, anymore,how you taught us how to sing in harmony and balance sing as we breathe through the words as we sing, til this day, I hear the songs on the radio, that we use to sing, brings back most memorable moments, even if I try to sing it, I'm always cry while try to sing it."

I used to come to your moms to hang out and you at my moms back in the day! you and your family showed me nothing but love and I thank you for that! we hung out on the weekends. The Smith family sends their prayers to the Pierce Family! This is so hard for me! Im still in shock!"
