Time to grieve

Thanks for understanding.

As many of you know, my dear father-in-law died Sunday. Well, on Wednesday, his wife, my dear mother-in-law, broke her hip. She has extreme dementia, something called aphasia. It’s been a hellish week.

As I was working yesterday, I realized I’m pushing too hard. I need time and space to breathe, to grieve. We’re going to Ohio for the service. I need to prepare. So I’m taking the day off. I trust you understand. 

Many thanks. –JS
