Leander A. Maes: A brother and a teacher remembered

SAUGUS — It's been a month since Belmonte Middle School teacher Leander A. Maes died unexpectedly. And his brother is still amazed at the reverberations his death left in the town.

"The wake lasted 6½ hours," musician Brian Maes said. "We were amazed. And I don't think I ever heard the words 'your brother changed my life' as often as I heard them that night."

And when the funeral process passed the middle school, Principal Myra Monto had all her students outside, waving flags "from all different countries," Brian Maes said.
