I'm so so sorry Lori. I agree with Erin. You being there will mean a lot to them. I'm not going to lie, going to a young child's services is one of the hardest things you can do. I just had to do it in January for a former student who is one of my current student's brothers. I tried to focus on the fact that even though I didn't think I could do it I needed to to show my support for his parents and his brother. Try to focus on being there for Dillon and his parents. That doesn't make it any easier, but it will help you get through. It is most certainly fine to cry. It will show Dillon and the other students that it's ok for them to grieve that way. Oh, another thing that will completely take you aback is the reaction of the kids. One of the hardest things for me to deal with was watching all of the kids (most of them having been former students). Seeing them in so much pain mourning the loss of a friend was terribly difficult. I wish I could give you a great big hug.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!
