Looking for personal closure

My beloved job at DPT Business School has been the best job I’ve had since my arrival in the US. It was not the money, but the daily satisfaction I used to get from it. It was the students and of course the fellow teachers. This place had a unique atmosphere.

It went out of business in December 2011 after 24 years. Just a few days ago, I was in the area again and there’s this art & craft store in its place.

I know this may sound weird, but I went inside and made a mental placement of what every room I used to teach was located, I went all around the entire school inside the new store. I was in my mind, in the teachers lounge, where my locker used to be, where the supervisors area was, etc. etc. It did hurt, I don’t know why, but I guess I was looking to have some sort of closure from it. Anyway, I wanted to be inside in the same place I worked and shared and laughed for 3.5 years now that this new store is open; and since they literally destroyed down the school completely. They left no inner walls, no ceiling, no floor, I even heard that crews came to destroy some equipment left behind inside. Look at what the pics show before the store was built up, just an empty shell!
