Yesterday NHL’s teacher that has been working with him over the summer called. M has been truly amazing with him. He’s made so much progress in in the 6 weeks and everyone has noticed. Unfortunately M was calling to tell us that she will not be able to move with NHL to his new school. She will be moving to England to be with her future husband. I am crushed and have to figure a way to tell NHL. Still I consider ourselves to be blessed to have had her on Team NHL over the summer to make such progress before he begins PreK in a few short weeks. Now we shall see how the new provider is once she calls about it.
While I was on the phone with M the call waiting kept going off. Two of the numbers were formers colleagues of mine. NOT a good sign.So I called one of them up and got news that quickly made the above seem like nothing.
The librarian at our school was on vacation with her family. Her daughter went with her, but her husband stayed at home to work. She kept trying to call him, but he wasn’t answering. She was alarmed and had her brother-in-law go to check. He found him in bed. He had passed away from a heart attack at 46 years old.
I can’t even imagine. Once again this is something to make me remember to savor the moments with my loved ones because you just never know. Please keep my friend and past student in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
