Literally a few seconds ago I was in the middle of great Left 4 Dead 2 game of scavenger, and I received the news that a very dear friend of mine (my teacher in 5th and 6th grade) has been told that his throat cancer, which he has been battling for a couple of years, has gotten too widespread and that he has a week or so to live. I am extremely disheartened by this news and.....I am not quite sure how to handle it. This is spurred by the fact that we have had so many memorable moments such as when I got sick and he bought me juice on a field trip or when I wrote him a story and he loved it. He was my favorite teacher ever and its hard to believe that this was even a possibility because well, I guess I liked him so much I believed that he would pull through the disease, and everything would be fine. To be perfectly honest, I am getting a little teary eyed right now, and I wish that he could fight it off still but I guess I have to come to terms with reality. Hopefully I can make the time to visit him soon, but now I have to drink myself to sleep. Thanks for reading my incredibly depressing story.
My favorite teacher of all time, dead at the age of 53. You will be missed.
