We got word last evening that our 48 year old Athletic Director died in a car accident yesterday. He was in Delaware, returning home after the funeral of his aunt. He's been a teacher in my school for 20 years, and is part of the fabric of the building. He leaves behind a wife and 2 daughters, ages 8 and 11. He's the 4th loss to our staff this school year, and by far the most devastating. He's one of the best friends of our AP, who buried his dad 2 weeks ago. Brutal...incredibly brutal.
