April, thank you for checking in---I know you are still just beginning to taste the bitter cup of grief. We all needed to hear how you are doing, and don't presume to understand how hard all of this for you & Charles. While many of us know grief on a first name basis, it is still never the same as someone else's pain. So, to know that you are able even to write about what happened is encouraging. I know grief is not linear & you will revisit often a place you thought you had overcome. Sometimes it also comes at the most unexpected moments---so take your time & let us know how you are doing. We want to be here with you as you process even as we were in the "not knowing" phase. It helps us to be with you.
