Mr.Ventrella was the first teacher to allow me to understand math. To go from getting C's or lower in math classes, to getting A's and actually understanding the material was a feeling that I will never forget. I owe a lot to Mr. Ventrella as I am currently in college math classes and know i wouldn't be where i am without him. Mr.Ventrella was the most patient,kind hearted teacher I have ever and his personality made class enjoyable. I am deeply saddened by this news and send my condolences to his family and loved ones. RIP Mr.Ventrella.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I enjoyed knowing and caring for Frank on 4D. He was one of my all time favorite patients. I'm sorry for your loss and I know he will be missed, but I'm also happy to know he's with our Savior now.
