This year Antonio Thomas, an 8th grader at Penn Charter, succumbed to a long and hard struggle with leukemia in January. I only knew him briefly as his counselor during the 7th Grade camping trip, but we all grieved his loss deeply. With spring around the corner, it feels like it’s only now we are finally emerging from the shade of our sorrow to something positive.
Here you are with hair
And the same smile you always
Wore beneath your cap
