I just wanted to thank everyone for your support and condolences. When I was speaking with some friends and family, one girl said, "My whole church is praying for you." When folks looked at me, I said, "I have the Internet." It sounds funny, but it’s true.
Through Twitter, Facebook, comments, and email, so many folks have reached out to me. Wine bloggers the world over, wineries, writers, regular readers, old friends and new friends, restaurateurs, and retailers … I’ve been shocked and amazed by the support in this awful time. I created a Facebook group and the photos and memories that have been shared are also wonderful and helpful.
It’s been almost two weeks now and of course, we’re all still grieving. Time heals all wounds, I know, but this is a gaping void where a vibrant young girl should be standing. Personally, I’ve bounced all around those 5 stages of grief, in no particular order, but I seem to be hung up in anger. Eventually, my whole family will move towards acceptance.
Krystal, who was all about living life to the fullest, would never want us to stop living our lives. And I know from when Kevin’s dad passed a month ago that in order to heal, you must continue to live. So as of Monday, I’m back on blogging wagon and ready to go. The regular Friday post, however, may not go up on time this week.
Again, I can’t thank the whole wine/Internet-related community enough for all your warmth and support.
Much love and cheers,
