The Intermountain Indian School held a reunion in March of this year and Hal Reeder, who taught at the former Brigham City school for 25 years, wanted to be there.
But, two days before the reunion, his wife died.
"I put it out of my mind," he said. "I wasn't going to go."
Sorting through his wife's papers, Reeder found a poem he'd written when the school closed in 1984, in which he expressed sadness there might not be any reunions. So he went.
