I wrote this blog right after our session but don’t always post blogs in order, especially in the summer. I wish I would have posted it sooner but wanted to make sure the world knew how kind, calm, funny, and missed Zahir will be. My heart is broken for all of you who are grieving this incredible loss and I’m right there with you.
When we got to this session all I could think about was when I first met Zahir in 6th grade! Not only does he have one of the coolest names I’ve ever heard but he also has the best personality. I don’t think I’ve ever heard him complain (unless he was joking with his teachers 😉 ). Even when something does happen that would make most people angry, he just lets it roll right off. When we were talking about his car and how he’s been working on it since the day he bought it, he told me about it getting keyed in a parking lot right after he got it. I was upset for him and yet his response was so calm and much kinder than I would have been. I know he’s going to do great things in life and am so glad that I got to be a part of his senior year through pictures. He’s going to be driving semi trucks after graduation and one thing we have all learned in the last year is how that is one of the most important jobs in our country and I know he’s going to be awesome in that role!
