Life seems to be getting back to normal...whatever that is! We continued to be astonished at the outpouring of love and support. I've posted photos of just a few of the many well-wishes and printed prayers, along with some photos of the senders, that Laurie, Mattie and I put up on 2 of the bulletin boards (approx. 6 ft x 4 ft each) in Sean & Laurie's loft. The effect for Sean was deeply profound. He took an audible breath in, expressed disbelief and began "hungrily" devouring each word while all the time exclaiming how amazing it all was. It is a rare moment indeed when a person finds himself in a situation such as this in which he can see such striking evidence of a life well-lived--innumerable friends expressing love and support. Normally this type of evidence is only seen at a memorial service. To be able to live to see it is a gift indeed.
The story does not end here. There will be more to report as time goes on. "Sweet Crude" is still alive and well.
