For those of you who came in late, an update:
Crystal and I are in Erie. On Thursday, Crystal’s mother suffered a serious heart attack. Yesterday, she was officially declared brain dead.
I’ve been keeping in touch with people mostly via Twitter, because it’s an easy “fire-and-forget” message system that lots of people can read. That way, I only have to say it once. Plus, my sister Gabrielle has been graciously watching the Twitter feed and then passing on emails to other folks as necessary. (Thanks, Gabrielle!)
The funeral is on Friday, and we will be returning on Saturday.
So, thus the news.
Thanks to everyone for all your love and support.
