"I just wanted to thank you all for your kind comments and the supportive emails I’ve received in the last 24 hours. Many of the emails came from people that I’ve never before met, either in person or via the comments. They were the regular but silent readers of this blog. There is much to be said about the kindness of strangers. There is equally as much to be said about the kindness of friends. It's a very real community spirit that exists. You have all given me and my family a great deal of comfort as we wait for news."
