    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.

    So sorry Alice. You and your school have went through many lifetimes worth of suffering this year-more than anyone should have to. Deep thoughts are with you...

    I'm terribly sorry for the losses your school has suffered this year, Alice. God always has a plan and never gives us more than we can bear, but sometimes it's very difficult to see or understand His Design.

    My prayers are with all the faculty, staff and students of your school as you share this tremendous burden of loss.

    I have no idea how I missed this thread, I will definitely keep your school community in my prayers. Satan doesn't let up, but God is there to pick us up. I pray God be with his wife & kids during their darkest hours. I've heard you talk about how good it is to work at your school & it is that bond that will get y'all through yet another crisis. Love you girl & hang in there.

    Wow Alice. It seems your school is really being tested this year. Like DHE, I've never heard you say a cross word about your school. Many prayers for you, the students, and the families of those lost.
    Big hugs!

    Thanks for all the prayers guys.

    It was brutal. We closed school on Friday for the wake; I waited an hour and a half to get in. The funeral on Saturday was over capacity.

    Every time I see that flag at half staff I cry.

    Ed and his wife were supposed to be at the wedding of another of our teachers on Saturday. So now, every year on her anniversary, Liz will remember the loss of her close friend.

    And all week, every time I saw another mom, we both started to cry, thinking of his wife (also Liz) raising those two young girls alone. At the wake, she said that her greatest fear was that she would fail her girls and not bring them up right without Ed being there.

    It was simply awful.

    Alice,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Our school lost a teacher a few week's ago and it is so incredibly difficult when you're dealing with children and trying to grieve yourself. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your school.

    Blessings, prayers and love!
