Dear Dennis

I wish things could have been different from you, I know we all want to turn the clock back to last Thursday and to make this not happen. There must have been a reason for you to take this path, and I am struggling to find acceptance for your choice.

I still remember the baby you were, I used to babysit for you all the time. You were a typical toddler, full of life energy and temper tantrums. You grew into a delightful little boy, I always enjoyed seeing you grow and develop.

I haven't seen you much over the last years, living on another continent made us lose contact. I heard about you a lot, since you visited my mom quite often, but I did not have personal contact. I wish I could have known you as the man you became and I am sad about the choice you made. I am sending you all my love and you will always live in my heart. I hope you found the peace you were seeking.

Hi Karen, It must be hard to be there with your loved ones and have such a hole. I'm so sorry for all the questions that remain unanswered for those left here after such a choice.

I wanted to let you know that the meeting went well. Julie, Angus & Lydia, Melinda & Angela, Wendy & Dillon, Donna and Opal, Annie and Nathaniel & Madeleine, & Angie , Isabella & Ellessia all came. Sylvia was still asleep when I arrived. She presented herself in the kitchen and then Xander held her while she got her bearings. I think we only saw her twice after that! She was with the girls, and then when the meeting started breaking up Annie took her next door. Melinda, Angela and I remained, thank you for the use of your home, and we talked about depression - in her family right now. then the three of us took off for TJMaxx! Have you even had time to think about geocaching?! ;-)
