Quoting snglemama:" I truly didn't mean that to be mean... was just saying not to focus on the illness. It really doesn't ... [snip!] ... illness. It really doesn't matter. It's sad, but knowing what is wrong won't help. He obviously doesn't want anyone to know."
Sorry, it's just sensitive for us because we really do care about this man greatly. We know things about him that no one... seriously no one.... in the school knows. The administration probably knows but it sucks he can't be more open.
Like... he is gay and has a "husband" and their two "kids" are his beloved pups. He cant bring his partner to the school or be open because he is worried parents wont let their kids be in the music programs. So he said "Kids need music, so if that means I cant openly be me, thats okay. I dont want to turn them away from music." Its sad. So he talks to us in private about their kids and his partner, and we were going to invite them over for Thanksgiving. But he became sick... so ya know it couldnt happen. We love him greatly, and he is a WONDERFUL teacher. Very high strung, he made me cry once ;) lol but hes a great man. He says he feels at home and at peace when he hears the kids sing and play music. And now his concerts were canceled, the choir program was put on hold, ugh... it just sucks. His lifeline is that school and it sucks to not have him there.
