Yours with much love always,
My heart stops for Liz. Her family was going to update on Twitter but when I heard nothing my worst fears were realized. This has either been a terrible year of loss or the longer we live the more death in numbers seem to speed up into more and more deaths and the survivors guilt is overwhelming
Oh Ilene, I know – it’s simply horrific contemplating the losses in the community this year
