Thank you to everyone who has reached out, said a prayer, sent good energy and kind thoughts this weekend. We can see that Mandy and Ed are totally and completely enveloped in the love and support of family and myriad friends. I don't know if this makes anything easier for them, but I can hope that it does. My mother-in-law shared these words from Anne Lamott about helping parents cope with tragedy. We will all continue to raise this barn of love and support around Mandy and Ed for as long as needed.
I had planned to share some progress on the house that we've made lately with you this week. I just can't do that right now. Our minds and hearts are full of our children right now, so instead I'd like to focus for a little bit on my own sons.
