Wordless Wednesday

  John and Izzy at one his elementary schools graduation. This was his first one and he was so proud he insisted we come.  I know having a full time job for John was tough. No musician wants to have a "job" but this soon became a passion for him. He loved teaching and getting through to children. He loved watching them dance and sing and bring in musical instruments. He loved all the children. Each and every one of them. He especially loved the special needs children. He really was able to tap into them and loved to teach them. Sometimes he would tell me about it and cry because he was happy to see smiles on their faces or see their body dancing in a wheelchair.   He loved this town and community and I have to say, I do too. The staff, parents and children have taken care of us since John died and I am so overwhelmed and don't know how to thank them but only hope they know how much it means. I hope the children this year remember him-even if he  was only there for two weeks. I hope they remember what a gentle and wonderful person he was and carry that with them for the rest of their lives and spread kindness in his honor. He really loved being a music teacher. He wanted to go back to them when he was really sick and kept asking for them. Below are drawings and get well wishes from a book that was made for him-that he never saw. I will be posting more drawings underneath Wordless Wednesday photos this month to honor these children and a way of thanking them. 217 days without you
