My children’s teacher and principal passed away unexpectedly today. Last night we were just talking with him at a school function. I am so glad that my kids have a happy memory of him. I do too. I am incredibly sad for his daughter, my good friend. I am also sad for his wife who I also call a friend. She is Freckle Face’s teacher and too young for this to be. He was the father of 6 and grandfather to several grandchildren.

Regardless of some of the differences we had, I feel this loss deeply. My heart hurts for my friend and her family. We are going to church tomorrow, and it is going to be hard. He absence is going to leave a large hole in our church family. Thank you for any prayers.
