I received a phone call yesterday from one of the teachers I work with - one of our students died on Friday morning. She was only in 4th grade - 10 years old. She had just had her first crush on a boy...she was amazing. She wrote an essay at the beginning of the school year about how she believed in Unicorns and they "farted" rainbows - so that was how rainbows were made. She made me laugh - she was so full of love...I saw such a future for her. Now, it is gone...she is our angel in Heaven....

She died in her in peace Oreonna - I will miss you so much... emoticon emoticon

    I'm very sorry for your loss of that special child. We never know why someone so young is taken so early in life. Even at her young age it seems like she already made a difference to others. I will keep her in my thoughts. Take care.

    Dear NorCalCat,

I'm so sorry for the loss of such a special student. I know that loss (from students of my own dying), but never at such a young age. I hope it was just as you said, she went to sleep. I know we never know when or especially why this had to happen. I will light candles and pray for her family, your other students and the rest of the school year for you!

"Ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care".
