I am sadden to say that a former student of mine has passed away in a tragic accident at only 9 years of age, along with his younger brother this past weekend. When I first heard the news, I froze, my mind went into a daze. When it was finally confirmed that it was one of my past student, I broke out into tears. Memories of him and his parents just kept playing over and over in my head. Never had I imagine ever losing a student or it even affecting me this way. My prayers and condolences go out to his parents. Rest in peace little angel, I will forever miss you and your beautiful smile.
Please keep them in your prayers through such a difficult time.
