This picture was taken just minutes before I would hug my son for the last time. I feel fortunate to have had a pleasant evening with Blake Alexander Morrison.To my family and friends who are messaging, I am doing my best to keep up. I do appreciate you reaching out, even if I am not quick to respond.To my colleagues, I will graciously accept your words of comfort. But, the truth is, I prefer to focus on work until I am able to join my family in Illinois. That said, at this time, I am relying heavily on Thommy Sandvick to manage my schedule and communications.To both, I want to scream uncle and punch a wall. But, instead, I will be conducting meetings, attending events, and training our members. I will even smile.Until I don’t.With so much loss in recent years, I’ve come to realize that I am best able to process my grief in short bursts with long periods of pretend in between.Pretending to be okay. Pretending nothing is wrong. Pretending I’m not devastated.To all, please accept my apologies when/if I drop the ball on responsibilities and communication. I promise that I mean no harm.💔…/quatros-owner-saluki-alum…/
