I cannot thank you all enough for the outpouring of love, compassion, understanding, and sympathy in the comments on yesterday’s post. It means so much to me and I have truly savored every comment and have felt surrounded by your love and kindness. I will try and respond to each of you individually but in the meantime please know that I have read them all and shared them with Dale. When the time is right I will also share all of them with Mary.
For right now I think I might need a little space from blogging. It just seems . . . odd . . . to start talking about regular stuff like knitting and reading and what we’re eating around here – which is actually amazing since the food has been pouring in from friends and it’s been very very good – when Randy’s death is still so fresh and painful.
In the meantime, you might enjoy reading this article that was in our local paper, the paper Randy wrote for, the paper Mary wrote for, and in fact the paper my brother worked for as an advertising executive for many years and my nana worked for as a bookkeeper. It illustrates just how special Randy was.
I’ll be focusing on happy memories and I promise I’ll be back soon.
