Remembering Roberto

I know that I’ve come to you my readers before in sorrow over losing a student. This year has been especially difficult. I was thinking back over the last few years, and I realized that I have had 6 students pass away in the last 4 years. It never really makes a difference if you know they are fragile, and they struggle with each breath, you miss them deeply when they are gone. Roberto was the sweetest little boy, with chocolate brown eyes, and eyelashes that went on forever. He was a bit of a flirt, and would light up the room with his smile! Just the week before we made arrangements to take his 5th Grade Graduation photos to commemorate him going to middle school. It was so sudden, and before we knew it he was gone! Working with special needs students is sometimes very difficult, and this is one of those times.

Roberto, we love and miss you! Hugs from the heart, Mrs. Norman

  1. Oh, Jeanette, I'm so sorry for your loss and yet so thankful for people like you that care so deeply for these special little ones. Heaven is a bit fuller tonight and Roberto is free from all his earthly burdens.
    God bless you,

  3. Hi :o)
    I didn't download the QP but it is a really sweet & sad page. The song playing [Mercy Me?] makes it even sadder.

    Dr Seuss wrote something once that really impacted me. Maybe you'll take something from it too -
    'Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened'

    Bless ya :o)

  4. I am so sorry about Roberto. What a blessed job to have being a special needs teacher. I am sure those children are so encouraged and blessed by your love. What a blessing to teach and love them in their short and others maybe longer lives. May the Love of Christ shine out of you for these little ones! My heart is so humbled, yet I am encouraged by your heart to have the Love of Christ flow out of me to others like this.

  5. Oh Ms. Jeannette,

    Thoughts and prayers your way sweetheart. Loss is never easy for those left behind and sweet Roberto has left a VERY special place in your heart forevermore!

    Your BIG heart has and will continue to touch many lives in a very profound way my friend. You are a precious soul ...

    Love and hugs,
    Linda <3
