Community FYI

Just wanted to let you know that our beloved commenter hedra's sister died suddenly and unexpectedly a few days ago. Hedra and husband and kids are hurting. I thought you'd want to know. I'll tell her I posted this so if you leave any comments here she'll see them when she comes up for air.

  1. Hedra, you have always been such a source of strength and wisdom (and humor!) in your comments on this blog. I have been learning from you here since my first was born in 2006. I just had my third baby on Monday and I want you to know that because of you and moxie, I am such a better mother. Thank you for your mark on my life and the lives of my children.I’m praying for peace and rest for your hearts as you grieve.

  2. Hedra, I’m so sorry that this is happening to you and your family. I lost my younger brother very suddenly almost three years ago. He was 24 and it was an absolutely gutting feeling. Grief is not viewed as an “illness” though its effects can really change aspects of your life. I hope you will find peace and seek comfort from those that are here for you.

  3. Hedra I wish I had your eloquence and wisdom so that I could return some small part of the comfort and help you have given me and so many of us here. Please know that I am thinking of you and your family and sending my best thoughts and love.
