Editorial: Good teacher gone too soon

Perhaps her final lesson to her students is the most important of all. Through her death, she has taught them to care for others the way she cared for them. They should realize just how precious life is and to enjoy the moments they have here on this planet. Unlike math, life has no guaranteed solution.

We were struck by the words of student Ashley Buffa, who upon hearing of Lawrence-Lane’s death went home and wrote a song, "She’s Home," that has nearly 4,000 views on youtube. She wrote:

"And as she watches from the skies,

she says do not mourn,

but celebrate my life.

So dry your eyes, you’ll be okay.

I’ll watch over you every single day.
