With my husband’s permission, I posted the message he sent after finishing my book. It took him a few months. It was understandably hard for him.
I get it.
Last week there was more editing that needed to be done on the most difficult chapters which involves putting myself in the back of that police car and living it again–hearing the news about Charles’ suicide. The chapters are much better but that came at a cost. The process left me emotionally spent.
Recovery happens more quickly now. And there is healing for having done it. It is my choice to write this but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. That’s how I know reading it wasn’t easy for my husband.

What complete validation from your husband! Now you can look forward to Charles’ sign saying, “ good job, mom and thank you.”
That’s how I see it, too
What complete validation. Now you can wait for Charles to send you a “ job well done, mom” sign.
Hmmmm. Maybe that’s why all these little strange things that have been happening
This made me cry. Shew. I can’t wait to read it and know I will honor you, Charles and Randy with each page, as I know the emotional toll it took to write and re-write. 💙
I went to a book editing presentation and when I came home a number of thkngs in the book jumped in my face as CRUTCH! Lazy writing because I didn’t want to go there all the way. I had to do that. And that’s when the magic happens.
I’m so thankful this tragedy has not torn you two apart, as tragedy often does. It is a blessing to walk this journey hand in hand, shoring each other up. ❤️
I know. Going this alone would have been hell.
