His brother was in my grade. His other brother was a few grades under. The family and mine lived somewhat close to each other and were members of the same swim club. At his memorial service at the school one of the teachers played Turn! Turn! Turn! The school planted an apple tree in his memory. Some of his classmates mixed some of his ashes into the soil at the base of the tree. It was really sad.
Oh wow, that is awful. That poor family.
