Kathleen Davey's Progress

It's been a year. A very long year. Some anniversaries are dates you don't want to celebrate, to remember. This anniversary is one of those.

There's a link to a letter Mike wrote on Kathleen's page. He read it to her yesterday, on the one year anniversary.

I check Kathleen's page almost every day and stop each time to think good thoughts for Mike and his family.

Reading Mike's letter to Kathleen today and listening to the music he chose, I cried.


You can say that there is some unknowable reason why bad things happen to good people, that there is some good that will come of all this, that we are never given burdens we cannot bear. The community has gathered 'round in support. The family has managed amazing things. Mike and Bean and their girls have made us all more aware of the importance of family and friends and this moment in time.

Fine. We've all learned the lessons, and learned them all again and again.

Now, all this unbeliever wants is a miracle.
