Today I got some news that made me cry in the street.

Proper tears rolling down my cheeks – no wonder people looked down at their feet as they saw me approaching.

And while I never met the person it related to, I know the person it has directly affected and as they’re a gentle, tender, compassionate soul, the news is even sadder than it would already be.

I saw the email as it came in.

I read the first lines over and over again.

I comprehended it but couldn’t comprehend it.

The speed.
The tragedy.
The words of love and loss.
The consideration of others.
The utter respect to a person who was their all.

I had just walked Otis to school – a rare treat because I have an afternoon flight – and all I wanted to do was run back and get him.

Run back and hug him tightly.

Life can be so extremely cruel.

Stealing the future of a life filled with promise.

I am devastated by today’s news.

I don’t know what to say or what to do.

So I’m putting this out there, because while it cannot change the circumstances or even take away any of the pain, it is my way of telling you the impact you and your family have made in so much of us.

The people you are.
The dignity you have.
The kindness you embody.

I am thinking of you mate.

Of all of you.

Big hugs.
