One Year Ago
It was one year ago today that we found out that one of our former students had passed away. Reto was such an energetic and charismatic young man and both Der and I remember him fondly. I got to know Reto as his homeroom teacher in Grade 7, our first year in Sri Lanka. Though he regularly tried my patience, I enjoyed having him in class and getting to know him as a person. Der got to know Reto through basketball (he also taught him IT for two years). Reto was one of his boys and always went to hang out in D's office before school started in the morning. We were so shocked to hear the news and many tears were shed. Reto crosses our minds often and we have such good memories of the times spent with him.
