In the touching letter to his 'awesome' teacher, Markus, whose dad isn't in the picture. says that Mr J has more than filled that void for him. "I never met my real Dad but it okay because you treat me like I'm your son. You make me so happy. Always feeding me when I am hungry and hug me when I am sad. I will never forget you Mr J.' The note was left on Mr J's desk and upon finding it, he could help it but shed a little tear. Under the name Mainey Maine, he tweeted a photo of sweet note, saying that although he tried really hard to hold it together, he couldn't help but cry.

The letter read:

“To Mr J

Thank you for being an awesome teacher and for being amazing! This school year was so fun and I enjoyed it because if you. I wish more teachers was like you. I will never forget you.
