I had my backdoor open today, I heard the wind chimes making such a peaceful sound – it made my heart a little sad.
I worked in the attendance office at McNeil and as you can guess, I got to know Chad very very well – we became quite close – after a while, I couldnt help but melt when he looked at me with those big brown eyes!
At the end of his senior year, he brought me a thank you card and the wind chimes to thank me for pushing him and helping him get his diploma.
I read alot from the page today and I just looooooved this : “the McNeil High School student who had pushed his friends into every kind of mischief imaginable, giggling all the way.” Thats the Chad I knew and remember, thats soooo him – soooo sweet!
It saddens me that they failed him…and that we lost him too soon.
I hope to help out in May!
