''I asked him what it was about, and he said he had just taken over that class, and it was time to close when the boy brought him a letter and said 'Sir, can you help me type this letter?' The teacher said when he saw the heading he decided to take it home. It was after he picked the letter to type that he realised the story the boy was sharing with him ... He said the boy had been through too much. So, he sent it to me to help get the boy the needed support,'' Wendy told YEN.com.gh.

This is too hard to take I'm so teary cus I know how it feels to lose a mother, a father, and two siblings. All happened in 2020, 2021, and 2022. I feel his pain!
Myzz Bianca said:
This is so sad, I'm not normally the teary type, but I couldn't help but shed tears, I hope Jehovah God keeps him strong, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I pray and hope everything turns out well for him, I've also dealt with loss before(my dad) but this is too much and in quick succession too. God, please make a way for him. Amen.
