Thank you to all of the many people who have sent condolences and supportive messages. I appreciate it very much.
I wish I could pretend otherwise, but this time is difficult. My mind at times thinks that the last two weeks are not real, but they are. The loss of Matthew is searing, and made more so, because my love for him cannot bring him back to this world.
The path forward is not always easy for any of us. But we do move forward, a step at a time.
Thank you again for helping me to do so. Tomorrow I will resume posting, and I look forward to our continuing dialogue.
