It is going to get busy for me soon, so I am trying to crank out as many faces as I can right now.
Today I went to a Memorial/Funeral of a great teacher of mine. The only reason I got a good attitude to school and learning was because of her (which is funny now. Mum remembers a lot of my previous teachers were worried that we wouldn't get along and tried to switch me to a different class. In the end I got along well with her). She was a great person. A week or so ago I wrote a letter to her thanking her for everything she did (calling me out when I did something wrong, trying to make me laugh after being hit in the back of the head by a cricket ball and things like that). I was going to Brisbane on Monday. Before that I went into work to help. While I was there I got a call from Mum and Dad.
They told me that that great teacher had died.
She battled cancer for 5 years (after being given a 6 week life expectancy). Proved everyone at that hospital wrong.
The news really shook me up and today I went to her memorial with Mum. She influenced a lot of lives. Former students of hers (one of them was in his work clothes), parents of students (my friend Mitchel's parents were there), her colleagues and her family all gathered together to celebrate her life.
It hit me when they took her coffin and placed it in the car that she really was gone.
Sorry... I'm getting a bit teary eyed writing this. I'll stop now.
If you're here for a face, I'm sorry you had to read through that. If you are uncomfortable reading that, I'm sorry I put you in that situation.
I just thought that people should know that the world lost a good person.
Anyway, here's a face.
