I'm sure by now everyone's heard the very sad news that hit us all this Sunday. It hit most of us like a rock out of nowhere. Joe Kubert meant so much to me, I can't express in words how important he's been in my life.

He created an amazing school, a school that made it possible for my parents to meet. Yep, Mom and Dad met at the Joe Kubert School around '84, and got married soon after! They then had 4 kids, including me. If Joe Kubert hadn't built his school, I wouldn't be here today. It's a place that always felt like a second home. I only dreaded going in if I was behind deadlines. =P

When I think of Joe Kubert, I think of Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia, or Dumbledore from Harry potter. Maybe it was partially his hair, but mostly because he was just a wonderful, amazing person that everyone loves and respects. So full of wisdom, beautiful in every way.

I remember the first day of class with Joe Kubert. We had him on Tuesdays, so it was only our second day of 3rd year. By now we all knew each other and the teachers, so we were our usual loud selves during class. But when Joe Kubert walked into that room, everyone went quiet. He gave us a long, inspiring speech. He had a way with words. The things he said were incredible. I wish I could have recorded that speech. I felt so intimated, nervous, scared. I'm a pretty shy person, and I was a nervous wreck that day. Probably shaking in my chair. His gaze was so intense, and I was determined not to break eye contact when he looked my way. =P Everyone was just in awe, scared stiff. But then, Adam Kubert walked by the door with his little girl. Immediately Joe's face softened into a big smile as he scooped up his granddaughter into his arms. Suddenly he was just a sweet grandfather, a man who loved his family more than anything. He held her for 10 minutes, talking to Adam, smiling and laughing. Everyone's hearts were melted by the sight. I'm pretty sure I let out an Aww or two.

I just can't believe how lucky and blessed I am to have met him. He touched everyone who met him, even those who only briefly spoke with him. It meant so much to me. Joe Kubert taught me so much, not just about drawing, but about life in general. Just by watching the way he lived. I'll never forget my best memories of him. He will be greatly missed, and my heart goes out to his family and all those who loved him.

Thank you so much for the watch :) Have a llama! By the way, that journal you wrote about Joe made me cry :D I knew him well, I used to always see him reading his own comic books in the store...What a nice man.
