Heartbreaking news on the loss of a young neighbor

January 23, 2018 5:50 PM

Good evening Neighbors,

I bring you heartbreaking news this evening. This past weekend we lost a young neighbor. The young man who passed away was a La Follette High School senior and was known to many in the LHS community. There are grief counselors on hand at LHS for those students who need assistance and to process the loss of their classmate. If you're a La Follette parent or guardian, please be sure your child/children know(s) about this resource.

I do not know the young man's family personally; I don't want to bother them in this awful time so I have not asked for permission to mention the young man's name or how he passed away. The information is technically publicly available but I'd prefer to preserve privacy for the family. Even without knowing his identity we as a community can keep his family, our neighbors, in our thoughts.

I cannot imagine losing a child. I ask you to join me in keeping our neighbors in your thoughts as they navigate this heartbreaking event.

Thank you for being good neighbors,

Amanda Hall

Alder, District 3
