First off, I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and words.  Katie’s death was hard on all of us — she was too young, had gone through so many hardships in the time she had — and, although I like to think I’m all tough and practical — her death had a pretty sobering effect on me.  She was not MY student, not even in my classroom, but I saw her everyday, spoke to her everyday, helped her with various aspects of school life over the past three years and so she was a part of my working life.  She is missed, but as with all things, especially death, time does not wait, and we have gotten on with the business of living.

I’m going to need to open a new post in order to keep writing.

Again, many thanks to you all.

Looking towards thankfulness

    Love what you have written, Kath, and the photo is an awesome piece of “home”. Many thanks and many blessings on moving forward and modeling for all those young folk who still have a lot of living to do.

    So sorry you are going through this. It always seems so WRONG when a young person dies.
    Lots of love.
