I’m so sorry. Your experience is infinitely worse than mine, worse even than those of the families involved in the shooting I described, for at least the children (whom I didn’t mention) were not present when it happened. Thank you so much for your courage in helping others to understand grief, loss, and the frustration that will never really end.
