I thought that my writing had ended with the end of Jane's story, but I wanted to share something with you all. We came home today, and found something wonderful in our neighborhood
and at my brother's bar downtown.
And just as amazing, a stack of cards somehow waiting for us already, all reading "Jane was here". I've seen it on Facebook, and Twitter, and blogs, and, best of all, on the March of Dimes website (where some amazing friends have been donating in Jane's name). I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. You are lovely people.
Speaking of gratitude, can I just take a moment to single out my sister and her family? Jenny and her husband Kevin and daughters (Sarah's Awesome Cousins Tess and Molly) opened their home to us for nearly three weeks. Jenny came to the hospital with me when Jane was first brought to Boston, and Jenny and Kevin were there with us when she died. They drove with us back to Vermont today. They've kept me, Tom, and Sarah functioning. My sister rocks.
And so do you, invisible readers. I'm touched beyond telling by your response to Jane's story. Thank you.
