Thank you. As for right now I think we’re all coping in our own ways. The kids and I are creating and turning it off by napping as often as possible. We definitely have a sluggish, lazy, not feeling it aura about us and as for Joe, our property has never looked so good. He seems to be okay if we all just keep saying, “The lawn looks great!”

It’s interesting to see the family dynamic. He wants to fix it and make it better for all of us and he can’t because that’s just not how the grieving process works so instead we’ll just have really pretty flowers and vibrant green grass as if it’s this unsaid solution.
