First let me say I’m so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law, both about her diagnosis and resulting illness, and about her recent passing. Your emotional reaction is totally to be expected. That said, it shouldn’t matter if you’re emotionally reacting to something, or just reacting to something; there is ALWAYS going to be someone who is unhappy about your reaction. You can’t breathe in the current climate without offending someone.

I have not been able to read much here for the last week or so and so I am not aware of anything you spoke of, but I wish you wouldn’t go.

That said, I totally understand why you are. I talk a good game but upsetting people horrifies me. I am incredibly thin skinned. So I get it, but I hate it.

I hope you change your mind. If not, I will miss you, too.

The world needs more men who aren’t afraid to shout from the rooftops about how they love their wives.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
