I just found out that a student I taught died of COVID. I'm heartbroken. The poor kid and family.

to lose students that we have taught, no matter what their age.



What I have found that helps me (and the parents) through the grief is to share a funny or happy memory of the student with the parent.



So sorry for your loss, Cruxian.
