I second the idea that a stone for "Mr. Selman" is an appropriate memorial. Like many students he touched, his influence has never left me. I was fortunate enough to speak with him on the phone in later years and thank him for his example and kindness to me as a teen. He will be missed, as an exemplary person, and one of my mentors.

I was a student of Mr. Selman's in the mid-1980s at Lamar High School in Arlington, TX. Mr. Selman officially taught Geology, but often took time during and outside of class to teach and discuss topics across the breadth of his varied interests. I can remember taking time after school, just hanging out discussing theories of time travel, mass extinctions or the latest urban myth. Over time his interest in geology, fossils, gems and jewelry making rubbed off and we spent many an afternoon making jewelry that my mother treasures to this day. More than anything, Mr. Selman was a friend, and a great teacher that loved to share his knowledge. I wish I had caught back up with him before his passing to tell him the positive impact and memory I have of him to this day, but perhaps he knows. I continue to miss him, and have kept his memory in my heart and always will.I chose a "stone" as a memorial because of his intense interest in geology, fossils and gems. It seemed appropriate.
