School choir sings last song for their teacher

Here’s your daily dose of bittersweetness:

The kids in Alvin Junior High School in Texas learned the lesson we all have to learn sooner or later and made the best of it.

Their music teacher, Mariana Walker, 69, lay dying inside her home last Wednesday. So they gathered outside, and when the front door was opened, their voices carried inside.

“We had the windows open. We had the screen door open and she could hear that,” Walker’s daughter Alyx Vesey told KTRK. “I think that gave her a lot of peace.”

Walker died a few minutes later. Her funeral is being held today.
