It has been a long few weeks since I last posted. My oldest son,who was thirty nine, died unexpectedly in early November and I have been in the United States taking care of all those things that need taking care of before saying a final goodbye. What I found the hardest was just the sheer exhaustion that I felt while still having to make all the necessary arrangements. My son Jordan and I spent hours and hours trying to tie up all the loose ends that have to be taken care of when life ends.
I am back home in Puerto Viejo now and am just recovering and taking it easy. There is no better place to heal and every day gets a bit less painful. I have found that people are so kind and thoughtful, both here in Costa Rica and back in the United States. I am so very lucky to have the family and friends that I have. They make times like this much easier to bear. Thanks to you all.
