Yesterday was so hard...

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

We had to tell the kids. The teacher and I put them in a class circle, and with the help of a counselor and Hospice, we told them that Oreonna was gone. The look of shock, disbelief and utter sadness killed us. We all cried...and told stories about this wonderful girl. We went out to the garden and planted flowers for her. We hugged, we sobbed, we held each others hands. We talked about how even though she is gone, she will always be our friend...she will always be with us. The boys took it so hard. We made cards with the grief dogs....

Her parents we on campus yesterday. I was able to thank them for letting me be a part of their beautiful child's life...and to let them know how much she was loved. They are a beautiful family - they have 3 other girls. I let them know how much she means to us all...we all hugged.

I am still exhausted. I hope today we will find out why this happened....why she is gone....

Thank you all for your words and support.... emoticon
