I'm a teacher, and I can relate to being attached to my students. Every year it's hard to say goodbye. When you genuinely care for your students, they sense it without question and reciprocate the same feeling. No doubt Mr. Escalante has some former students who are very sad right now. My heart goes out to them and his family members. (Rev. 21: 3,4)

For Jaime...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

To the family of Jaime Escalante, please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I did not know Mr. Escalante personally, but like so many I was moved and inspired by the movie "Stand and Deliver". It was such a wonderful story and I can only imagine how proud you are of him, and how much he will be missed by his friends and family. I hope it's a comfort to know that he also lives in the memory of our loving God Jehovah. John 5:28 & 29 tells us of that wonderful promise when God will bring back our loved ones to a restored paradise on earth. (Psalms 37:11)
