I was a student from the school ILA, Mr. Betancourt was my math teacher in 4th grade when I was at the age of 9 or 10 all the way till 6th grade. When I left ILA, I was 12 years old. Now I’m a 16 year old sophomore at Eastwood high school, and I noticed that Mr. Betancourt's son josh goes to Eastwood too. The last time I said hi to josh was freshman year at the middle school , I haven’t seen him at all this year. I found out today that Mr. Betancourt passed away. He told my mother one time that he liked me because I wasn’t like the other kids, that I was a teachable kid. And I would remember every time my father would pick me up after school, Mr. betancourt would always ask my father for a miller light cooler, because my father and I wanted to give him something because he was a righteous loving man to every single child at ILA. One day I’m guessing my father forgot to give it to him, but now that he is gone I could never pay him my respects to Mr. Betancourt. I hope one day, when it’s time for me to leave this earth, I could meet him once again to give him that cooler, because I know he Deserved it, but for now I’ll never forget Mr. Betancourt.
