Rest In Peace Rebecca

Good morning everyone.  I just wanted to take a moment this morning to pay my respects to Rebecca Wingo.  Rebecca was a 1997 graduate of Ford High School in Quinlan, Texas.  Quinlan is a small town which is about a half-hour east from the outskirts of Dallas, and Ford High School was my second employer in public education.  I moved on to take a head-coaching job shortly after Rebecca's class graduated.  Rebecca was 32 years old and leaves behind 2 young daughters. While combing through news articles online, I came across an eloquent quote from one of Rebecca's friends in the Denver Post that speaks volumes about this tragedy:  "Everybody is hurting right now.  She was a gentle, sweet, beautiful soul..."  -Gail Riffle-  Rest In Peace Rebecca.


  1. Hard to understand why anyone would want to take out their hate and frustration in the way these lunatics do.

  2. Senseless and scary. Such a waste.

  3. Hard to believe this level of hate...
