Last night Mercy brought over a new batch of mail that she'd gotten from the PO Box she set up for us.
Later, after I'd put Audrey to bed, I opened them. So many beautiful letters grieving your loss Dan. And...even though it's only money- I was also moved to tears by the generosity bestowed upon me- especially from your friends who don't know me as well- because I know they do it for you.
I chatted with a friend of yours who sang at the funeral. I'd only met him one time in all of these years, but knew him through you. You went to church together in Boston. I thanked him for his very generous gift, and he said simply, "It's a family affair. That's how we do."
Very grateful for all of those who loved you so much, and very sad that you have left us.
