Comforting My Teacher

Austin L., age 9, Arizona

Jesus taught us to “mourn with those that mourn.” I didn’t know what that meant until my Primary teacher’s husband died. I felt so sad inside for her, and I wanted to help her feel better. I wrote her a letter and painted her a picture of a Christmas tree with presents. When I went to the funeral I hugged her and cried. I now know what Jesus meant when He said to comfort others.
