honoured


Matt has asked me to be on the board of directors of the Liz Logelin Foundation. I am so very, very honoured and pleased to be able to turn the experience of becoming a widow into something that will help others going through this. It gives some sort of meaning. I am so touched that Matt has included me in this project. Thank you again, Matt, for all you've done. You're the bomb!

How very fitting, and I'm sure Matt is equally grateful for someone like you getting onboard.

Well done both.

Dear Jackie,

That is such wonderful news! It made me smile to read this tonight.

You don't know me...I came across your blog a long time ago when reading Matt's... I checked in every so often but never commented because I just felt like there was nothing appropriate for a stranger to say. I have dealt with crushing loss but not the loss of a spouse and could not even begin to fathom what you were feeling or form fitting words of comfort. So I just read along silently and cried along with some of your posts. Reading your posts helped me understand my sister in law, too, who had lost her husband to cancer but is very private with her feelings...in a way, it helped me to know what she was going through so that we could know what would help and what might be unintentionally hurtful. Anyway, I had a baby a couple of months ago and hadn't checked in with any blogs until now...I'm so pleased to see that you are hanging in there and doing the best you possibly can. And you really are.

Love and Light,
Alaina
