I just saw the posting in the Southington paper. Ethan would talk about family stories you would tell in class. He loved having you as a teacher and always inspired him to come out of his shell. I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. I am sure there are so many wonderful memories to cherish.

With Sympathy,
Jennifer Cebelenski
