Dear Mr Placewicz,
You are the most awesome music genius and a teacher I respected the most ever!
Your knowledge on all kinds of music has inspired us so much. You really taught us skills and techniques so well which helped us learnt so well and really understand the meaning of playing music. I enjoyed your classes, your school band, your annual Christmas performance so much and you humors as well. It's a lost that you retired.Wish you good health. love you.

God bless you Mr. George Placewicz. You have completely inspired me to become a music and language teacher. Thank you for not charging me a single dollar to going out of your way to teach me the flute. I am so proud, so proud of St. Robert Catholic High School that they now have a orchestra and string band from what I hear from St. Robert Catholic High School alumni. I hope and pray you and Mrs. Placewicz have good health and know Jesus loves you.

Her english is not the best. She can ramble about different subjects barely relating to religion, but on the good side, she's a realyl easy marker.
