My Love,

I received your e-mail. Thanks for letting me know so quickly that you are ok and what had really happened. I’m glad I heard it from you before I saw the news. It has been a zoo with reporters calling and asking me for a quote, about how I was doing, had I heard from you, was I frantic, wanting to get the woman’s view, and so on ad nausium. They have sure had a field day with speculation and predictions of doom. But, I know you and am confident in your ability and your assurance that all will be well. Darn media, anyway. Why can’t they stick to predicting the weather and the election outcomes? Come to think of it, they’re not so great at either of those, either. Smile.

As soon as I heard from you, I called and spoke with Rich, let him know you were ok, and warned him about the press. I know he likes his anonymity and doesn’t want everyone to know about his parentage and attending WMU. Then, Mom and Dad called and I explained to them both what was going on. They were worried, but accepted my guarantee that you would be ok.

By the way, how is Ty doing, really? Better, I hope. He seems OK whenever I’ve talked to him on the phone, but still, I can tell he’s hurting and depressed. I haven’t seen him in several weeks with everything that’s been going on. Are you seeing the same things when you hear from him? I think about him from time to time and wonder how he is coping without Claire, especially around the holidays. It’s impossible to think about losing you. Those words are not in my vocabulary.
