I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of warm hugs and well-wishes for Mark and our family.

I'm still raw, still rattled, but feeling a lot better that Mark is home, safe and sound, and now sleeping peacefully in his bed. You can imagine how I spoiled him today, getting him a chocolate milkshake that he loves so much but can't have too much of.

As I hope you can understand, I'm not much into posting at the moment. I'm still trying to find my equilibrium again. This afternoon he finally told me that he had seen what had happened. He told me that there were two squad cars outside and he heard "lots of bang, bang, bang". Then two big policemen came inside where he worked and told everyone to stay inside and close the doors.

I didn't know all of this! So you can imagine how this has affected my family deeply. But I still wanted to stop in to thank all of you for your incredibly warm well-wishes and outpouring of support.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Luckily, Mark will be home tomorrow (Friday), too. That's a great comfort for us. And he's doing better than I thought although when I had asked him earlier if he was okay, he appeared a little rattled. But as the day wore on he seemed to settle and calm. The little bag of peanut M&Ms after dinner must've helped, too. lol. I know he'll be fine.

Once again, on behalf of Mark and our family, thank you all for all the wonderful warm hugs and well wishes. We really do appreciate it. I hope to be back soon.

1. Sending biggest damn hugs I can.

How do I make those hugs emojis or whatever they're called?



I hope those are all appropriate.

Best!!!

3. That's why this incident was such a bad one

These are the type of folks DU stands up for. Those working so hard to care for others with fewer resources than ever before. To see such bloodshed among caring individuals.....tragic.

I slept all day. It was depressing.

I felt so sad to see DU had been personally affected within the extended family. Best wishes to you and your son.

I am glad he is safe. Keep him close. Hugs to both of you.
