Thank you for finding the courage and strength to share your very sad and painful experience with the rest of us. It's difficult enough to go through something like this. To write it and then edit it for public view is to suffer through it again.

I feel for you and your family, and I pray that you will all find comfort and healing in the days and years ahead.

Your compassionate response to Chrissy Teigen's essay about her recent loss led me to your own beautiful piece. I'm a little late reading it but very grateful to you for reminding us of how connected we all are and how much we all need each other.
