    Darin and family- I am so terribly sorry for the loss of your beautiful Jackson. I have really enjoyed working with Darin this year at THS. Darin’s compassion, humor and faith have been inspiring to me here at school. I pray these traits will help your family as you navigate this difficult road. I pray for God’s love and mercy to envelope you all.
