Did you have any friends or classmates who died of natural causes (disease or illness) during your K-12 school years?
No, but my best friend died, on New Years Eve, when his house caught fire. He made it out but went back in to save his baby sister. He died but she was found under her crib badly burned. If anyone, at school, made fun of her, I'd protect her.
We lost a football player to a heart attack. It was awful. He had a heart defect no one knew about
I just love you. Don't always agree with you. But you do have a good heart.
One friend who died from leukemia.
Not friends but kids in the neighborhood, one from drugs and two others (brother and sister) suicide.
Brain tumor. I lost one who was playing with matches also.
Vietnam got a few
Two from illness. One was some kind of leukemia. I don't remember what the other one died from, if I even ever knew.
A kid in my 4th grade class died of a brain aneurysm while walking down the hall in school.
This guy that I knew in 7th grade because he was in my typing class and rode my school bus had a seizure in his bathtub and everyone at school the next day cried their eyes out :(
A girl from my 3rd grade class died of cancer some time later. Didn't find out until7th grade, though.
Yes. My brother.
Oh no! And so young...what a tragedy.
A girl in HS died of pneumonia.. Like two years before we graduated.
One kid died from a staph infection and we lost another one in a car crash
In my first year of junior college a (white) friend was murdered by a white supremacist couple for not handing over his car at gunpoint.
Wow. I would think that would be pretty traumatic for any classmates that saw it too.
I can't remember the exact cause of death but a girl died from some severe complications relating to her asthma.
No, but there were at least a couple of classmates who ended up in rehab before HS was out.
I know someone who was involved in a murder suicide
So sorry for your family.
Yes, my friend died in his sleep in 5th grade
Same thing happened to one of the basketball players at my high school. Scary and tragic.
That's horrible :(
Yes one girl at my high school had a heart condition and died at home in the middle of the night.
Not when I was I school, but in my 20 years of teaching I have had 2 unfortunate students. One from a cardio virus, one from a brain tumor.
