So sorry for your loss thorwren. My condolences to you and yours
I will be brief; too many thoughts run through my head with this news.
Adam's 'incident' on the AT was necessary. This is the trail your family needs to walk, together, for now.
It is a very hard trail to 'hike'. Know that several things will be your blazes in this time; most importantly, each other and those around you, like Fin.
As well as your memories of your father.
I keep you all in my thoughts and know that time will heal all these hurts, physical and heart-felt.
With love and respect,

Very sorry for you and your family.
Jen, So sorry to hear about your father. I sympathize with you, I lost both of my parents in the last couple of years. It is hard enough when you expect it and have time to prepare but when it's sudden and no one expects it that makes it even tougher I'm sure. I will keep you guys in my prayers. If there's anything more I can do please let me know. Our HF family thinks the world of you and Adam and your family.

Jenny and Adam, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. When you said gentle grump I knew immediately what you meant. Thats me all over. You guys are good people for sure and I hope your pain is short lived. My daughters mean the world to me and I hope when I go they can replace any sadness with memories of the special moments.
