Did you have any friends or classmates who died of natural causes (disease or illness) during your K-12 school years?

I can't remember the exact cause of death but a girl died from some severe complications relating to her asthma.

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.

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.

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 :(

No, but there were at least a couple of classmates who ended up in rehab before HS was out.

A kid in my 4th grade class died of a brain aneurysm while walking down the hall in school.

Wow. I would think that would be pretty traumatic for any classmates that saw it too.

We lost a football player to a heart attack. It was awful. He had a heart defect no one knew about

Same thing happened to one of the basketball players at my high school. Scary and tragic.

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.

I just love you. Don't always agree with you. But you do have a good heart.

Two from illness. One was some kind of leukemia. I don't remember what the other one died from, if I even ever knew.
