I know people die, and we will all be dead one day, but the news that my old Maths teacher has just died aged 51 is rather shocking. I didn’t particularly like the man, but he had an integrity which other teachers often lacked. Some years ago, his 18-year-old son died – and now he too has gone, albeit in unknown circumstances apparently. There’s to be an inquest and so forth before his funeral.
Maybe he just had enough fighting the pain of losing his son.
