My brother's retirement speech for Mr. Sutton

I was home on May 18th for the retirement celebration for Jon Sutton, my favorite high school teacher and the high school band director. My brother Mark and his two daughters, Sonja and Isabelle, came back to Indiana for the event too. The video is a speech given by my brother at the event. I missed the very beginning, but not much. Mark is over to the left of the stage, just a shadow/silhouette. (The lighting was really terrible in the auditorium.) Even though you can't see it, listen to it. I never knew my brother was such a great writer and orator. He surprised us all with this speech.
