When it comes to giving thanks, to all of you for everything you have done for us, I feel very short on words. We have simply been overwhelmed. From the very moment this happened until now, some forty-two days later, we have been inundated with kindness, love and generosity.

To our inner circle of family and friends, we would have barely squeezed by without you. From weeping together on the first night, to holding Margot together, to the morning food runs, the daily hospital visits, the massages, sharing in our tears, caring for Stella and for sharing in our grief into the future, thank-you.

And to everyone else, from family and friends far away, to those who brought over meals every evening, to those who sent cards and emails and texts, to those who left comments, to the strangers who reached out to us, thank-you for everything.

The road ahead appears long and tiresome. There are good days and awful days and we are learning to let each day be just a day, not giving too much credit to good days and not giving too much weight to bad days. We will continue to share our journey on this blog, so please feel free to stop in from time to time.

If we could have added emails, Facebook messages and texts to this picture, the entire room would have been filled. Our deepest thanks for all that you have done and all you will continue to do.

Thank YOU for being so willing to open up your lives to us, Josh and Kari. We love you even though many of us do not know you personally. We ARE part of your life now and will continue to uphold you in our thoughts and prayers. :)
