OMG! i know everyone is upset. i am too. I know that losing mrs. hamstra was something that no one ever expected. no one did. it was sooo painful. I know that every five minutes we think to ourselves "we have to move on because she wanted us too" and for a minute we are comforted by these thoughts, but then you think: did this really happen. or is this an extremely long dream. but remember no matter what anyone tells you, it is okay to cry because you have friends and you have people that will be there to hold your hand through all of this. it is okay to remember every laugh, every talk, and every smile because that's what keeps us going. just don't forget everything, and then later you feel like she's there with you. but remember, if you need someone to talk to, don't get scared to call a friend (hint: you can always talk to me).
Mrs. Hamstra, although she doesn't want any attention right now, she needs to know how much we care. she needs to know that no matter what happens, she is so unforgettable. we will always treasure her. remember all those time she yelled at you: she was teaching you a life lesson. she did it because she wanted us to succeed. remember how she stood up for us this year. she sang when she got happy. she drew all those figure for us on the board so that we could learn and follow her example. she told stories that strayed the topic so much just to prove a point. don't ever forget. We need to come together as a class and as friends to get through this. just basically, live your life, just never forget.
