2. I'm thinking of her children.

She had two children with the former sixth grade student AND she left behind four children from her first marriage.

6. They are..

All adults now. And they still have their fathers. I'm sure they are still grieving but they youngest is 21. The youngest child from her first marriage is about 2 years younger than Villi and I think I read he is 36.

5. FWIW


Vili Fualaau was by Mary Kay Letourneau's side for last 2 months of her life, lawyer says
Fualaau, whom Letourneau married after she was convicted of raping him when he was a child, was by her side for the past 2 months as she died of cancer.

7. It was a sad, tawdry story all along.

I watched it from Seattle, from the perspective of someone who saw similar things happen at my High School in Ohio. 2 teachers involved with students, albeit much older than Fualaau, and the male principal forced out (after I'd graduated) for (widely rumored) serial sexual abuse of pubescent boys, including my classmates.

None of them were convicted of crimes, none went to jail. I graduated in 1981.

May her children find peace. May Vili Fualaau find peace.
