That is to say, it’s even difficult to consider it the present moment – that he’s not with us. All of our school locale is crushed, alongside his family.”

“I don’t think there was any sign,” Blue said. “I don’t know about anything. It’s simply an unexpected, appalling passing. That is to say, he was instructing kids yesterday. It was stunning.”
