We have a principal and two assistant principles at my school, they take turns evaluating teachers and split up all of the administrative duties. On Friday, Jim, the assistant principal who takes care of facilities and disciple, called in to say he wasn't feeling well. He went to the doctor, but they sent him home again. That night he had a massive heart attack and died before the ambulance could get him to the hospital. He was 47 years old. Back to school this year was a bit unusual. Instead of the usual meetings on Wednesday we had a session of everyone remembering and telling stories. They had a team of grief counselors on hand for people to talk to. There was a memorial service last night and this morning is the funeral mass. So I will sew for a few minutes and then get changed to go to another funeral.
Sorry to keep having bad news. I am sure things will turn around soon and I'll have lots of good stories and quilting projects to share. I hope so anyway.
So, here is the usual linky list. Use it to share your red creations.
That is so sad
Oh no, that is very sad. I hope this week is a bit better for you with the kids coming back.
OMG. I can't imagine how difficult the start of school will be for your staff. I will be saying prayers for all you as you grieve together. Sending hugs.
So sorry to hear about your assist. Principal, this has been a difficult summer for you. Keeping you all in my prayers.
So sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers to you.
What a terrible loss, to compound previous losses and a WAY too short recovery period/vacation. So sorry to hear of the continuing challenges. I am in a similar (leaky) boat to yours...we NEED to sew!
What a shock to everyone that must have been. So hard for everyone to pick up the pieces. I'm sorry for this family's loss.
That is so sad. I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry to hear your start of school will have such sad memories. I hope your family and school family can provide some rays of sunshine!
Angela, Thank you for sharing this sad news. Good you had the time for remembering. While it brings tears, it also focuses on the good things about this person. What a shock for his family and all of you. I've heard a minister say that the more we share our stories the more we heal.Tears are good. They help to relive the stress.
It is so sad that this man lost his life way too early. I am sure everyone that knew him is shocked and really feeling the loss.
Let's hope that better days are ahead!
Oh Angela, I'm so sorry. Sending hugs and healing prayers.
That is so sad and must be a real shock... hugs.
Just a small start on my red snakey for August; too many projects waiting in the wings to do anything more this month.
Don't feel bad about your sad news; these things happen and it helps to talk about them--we all understand. Good thoughts wining your way...hugs, Julierose
So sorry to hear of the lose in your school family. Hugs.
Life is so fragile. My thoughts will be of his family, both at home and at school.
I'm so sorry about your friend's passing - so young.
Wow! I will pray for all of you.
So very sorry to hear of this loss...doubly sorry there was a chance for him to be saved and somehow his symtoms were missed. My heart goes out to his family and all of the staff at your school. HUGS!
My goodness what a horrible time you have had recently. Much too young to loose someone! Keep sewing it really is therapeutic!
How very sad. Not a good way to kick off the school year.
How very sad, wishing you happy memories of your friend and sunnier days ahead.
