Today is the end of a hard week for a loyal fan and dear friend of mine. His real name is not Thomas, but that's what I'm calling him here. This week Thomas has had to bury his mother at too early an age. His father passed when he was just a child. Being the only child of his mother, this is a burden he is shouldering alone. When all the affairs are in order, he will drive the return trip to his home across the country. It is a long journey without the additional emotional weight he carries. I cannot drive it for him, as I am not where he is, or I would.
What I can do is keep Thomas in my thoughts and ask that you, dear reader, do the same.
