Gympanzee: What I remember
I am the father of a boy that was supposd to be at the Gympanzee nursery on this tragic day, but we kept him home that day ecause of a slight knee injury he had the previous day. My son Christian, had a friend at the school that he called Habibi. His real name was Azuz (at least that was what it sounded like. Azuz was about 3 years old but exceptionaly friendly and bright. But I dont see anything mentioning him or his two brothers. I thought he was Half Arabic and half European. Can anyone please tell me if Azuz and his brothers are still alive? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I also wanted to add a more personal touch to this tragedy.
Here is what I remember from dropping my son off there everyday.
I remember the main teacher Ms. Charles, who was from south Africa, was really a beautiful person. I could tell that she really loved her job. I always took a few minutes to ask her how my son was going and she always had a smile on her face and nothing but nice things to say. She was truly an angel.
I didnt know the three filipina ladies that well because they were always with the children.
I remember a Japanese man bringing his son in to school for the first time about a 1-2 months ago. His son looked like he was about maybe 2 years old and seemed quiet but excited to be in school.
I remember a lady who appeared to be french, who used to arrive right after me, who had a son there.
I remember meeting the lady who lost triplets one time. She was walking in the door as I was leaving and she seemed very friendly and said hello.
I remember another lady who what looked like hospital scrubs, dropping off a child. I dont remember if the child was a boy or girl.
I remember seeing the triplets for the first time and immediately remember how cute I thought they were.
And I really remember Azuz, because everytime I came in with my son, he would yell "Christian is here! Christian!"
My son would call him Hababi. I have only learned as of a few days ago what that meant. I thought it was just a name my son made up. I didnt know that it was a term of endearment.
