My connection to tragedy

My mother e-mailed me this morning with something unsettling to read.
A longtime teacher and coach at Tucker High School and his 17-year-old son were killed Tuesday night during a home invasion in Gwinnett County.

Gwinnett police said Coach Bill Venable's home was the second house the suspect had barged into during a late-night crime spree that ended when police shot and killed the suspect.

Tucker High devastated by 'great tragedy'

Mrs. Venable was a teacher of mine in high school. She also chaperoned a student trip I took to England and France. I imagine she and her daughter are going through hell right now.
