Just a quick note to thank you for all your kind words about my grandmother. My family has been reading your comments and is immensely comforted by all the good thoughts being directed our way.
I get infuriated by the usual stories that pop up about how the Internets are ruining our ability to communicate with one another in any meaningful way. I’ve gotten to know so many wonderful, kind, generous folks through the blogs and whenever I’d talk about any of you to the family, it’s never, “this random dude who I don’t even know if he ‘s a real dude or not said this the other day,” it’s “my friend said this.” You’ve given me and mine a whole other network of support and warmth at a time when it was really, really needed. Thank you again.
