Bittersweet Reunion

My Mom attended the reunion for the high school she taught at in the late 1950s and early 1960s, North Grenville District High School in Kemptville, and was thrilled to meet up with so many of her former students. Unfortunately, she was the only one of her contemporaries to attend which indicates that most of them are most probably deceased.
Sadly, one of her former students, someone I remember and was so hoping to meet again was not there. Apparently, he committed suicide a number of years ago. I was so sad to hear this. Jimmy had figured in a number of my childhood memories and Mom spoke so often about her high hopes for his future.
Mom did, however, meet up with so many of her former students who were pleased to see her and even more pleased that she remembered them so fondly.
