Mr. Richard Call

This is Mr. Call, Papa Bear to his drama students.
Last week he was diagnosed with cancer.
This is the message his wife, Sayda left on her blog,
"We got the call this morning. It is cancer. The tumor is
12 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 6 inches thick. Remember the ER doc said it
was a pulled muscle? Well... it wasn't! There really is something growing, very
rapidly, in his thigh. We will go to SLC tomorrow to see the radiology
oncologist.
I can not tell you how much I love and appreciate him. Kira and Derek would have never survived high school with out his constant encouragement.
His family started a new blog just for Mr. Call.
If you would like stop by and say hi.
Please, keep him and his amazing family in your prayers.
Mr. Call, Sayda and family, we love you!
We are praying for you! We have faith that miracles can happen.

We love you so much too. It's students like yours that make my husband a good teacher. AND... parents like you that teach their children to appreciate good teachers. Thanks for everything.

Our Love to all

That is just horrible. You know what's so weird? A man in my ward just got diagnosed with cancer in his thigh. He fell a couple of years ago and bruised it horribly; somehow, it grew into cancer. He has been going to the Huntsman institute in SLC. So harsh.

Mr. Call was such an amazing inspiration to me, not very many people knew how much I looked up to him. I always enjoyed hearing what crazy idea he had next, I miss him dearly and I hope that everything will be okay. I will definitly keep him in my prayers.

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
