Mr. Moody,
It's hard to believe that you have passed. Just a few months ago, you were in my science class, and happy as could be. I just want to thank you so much for helping me with my science work and helping me improve my science tests with the study guide you had for me. I am very thankful that I met you. Everybody here at South misses you and will always continue to miss you. All my Sympathy to the Moody Family.

Mr. Moody, you were one of the greatest people ever to live. I went to the viewing, the funeral service, the burial, and the lunch; mostly because I felt it would somehow show appreciation for all you've done not just for me but for the many people you've known. I wish your wife the best of luck, and I know if you were here, you would know just how to help her through it. Thank you so much for being a great teacher and the kind of person everyone should strive to be like. You're age was proof that the good die young. You'll be in my heart forever, just as I know you will be in many others. Usually when people say someone's "gone to heaven", I say "look at what they've done, how do you know they're not in hell?" but you are the only person I couldn't ever say that about. Rest In Peace, you are and always will be sorely missed.

Mr. Moody was one of the greatest teachers I have ever had, If I ever had an issue, he was there to help and guide me through it. He had an extremely profound effect on my life, as he was one of the few teachers that fully got to know me for me, not just as some other student in the classroom. He truly was the one of the greatest teachers to ever walk this earth, and I am glad to have had him when I did.

P.S. The next time I am visiting my aunt, you should all come for a swim...I would love to see you again!

There are no words that can adequately express the stellar and rare character of Joe and the loss that his family and friends are experiencing. But love endures through time and space and Joe's presence and love will continue.

It was an honor to know Joe and his support and kindness to me will be cherished always. I will always remember his broad smile, warmth and integrity.

He is a welcome addition to the heavens.

It has been a long time since we worked together. I would hear from time to time how you were doing. I am beyond words to express how sorry I am for your loss. I remember all the plans for a St Paddy's Day wedding. I have experienced many traumas and loss in my life so if you ever feel overwhelmed and want someone to talk to, please reach out. God bless and guide you through your journey ahead.
Fondly, Kate D.

Mr. Moody,

You were there for me through everything. You were there when I needed someone to guide me, or just a friend to talk to. You are the reason why I graduated. You pushed me to be my best. Your advice has always been something that I took close to heart. There will never be another teacher out there like you. You were the best teacher I have ever had. I will miss you. I hope you know that you were loved by many. Rest in peace, you will always be thought of.

Mr. Moody was a wonderful teacher. He truly cared about his students. I will never forget how much of a difference he made in my life. My condolences to his family and friends.

Corky and I are heartbroken for you. We know how much you loved Joe from the moment you met him. What a nice man God blessed you with to share a short but magical life. Love is not measured by time but by intensity and you and Joe were blessed. What kind of man would go through what he did unless his love for his wife and children was so intense. Trisha you have been blessed and loved by such a wonderful man. You were lucky to have one another. We love you and hope that you will continue to draw strentgh from Joe to continue your different life. We love you...and our respect could not be greater.

My family would like to express our deepest condolences to you and your family. Joe was without a doubt one of the most lovely people I have ever had the good fortune to meet. My son would not have graduated without Joe's gentle and sometimes firm guidance his unwavering support and encouragement. He made a future possible for my son and there aren't enough words to express my gratitude.

Joe Moody truly embodied the humanitarian spirit. Such a friendly person who always smiled. That is how I'll remember you. God bless your family in their time of grief.

My son told me the other day that Mr Moody had died. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. He had such a wonderful way of working with the kids. He was positive, understanding and so patient - its a shame that CB doesn't have more teachers like him, many could certainly learn from him. It speaks volumns of his charachter that his students have left their stories. God Bless you Mr Moody. May you rest in peace and may your family know that you were loved and respected by so many.

Mr. Moody you helped me when I was at my worst in school and at home. You were there for me last April when my brother passed away, I wish I got the chance to see you once more for a good lecture on the happiness of life. You are and always will be an amazing and life changing teacher in my eyes!
