I feel thick. Thick with grief for someone I hardly knew. Thick with sadness for his wife who now has to navigate this life without her partner. Thick with from-the-gut-sorrow-and-distress at the thought of what those beautiful children are going through, will go through.
"Grief is like a mine shaft, narrow and deep." —Kenzaburo Oë
Rest in peace, M. May your memory be a blessing.
