As I was listening to this episode, I really just wanted to hug all of the guys (and especially the girl). Even though it was a “topic-less” episode, it was really about loss and grieving. I will resist my inclination to make this about me or to invoke my religious faith and just say how special it was to be let into the inner feelings of Tig, Kyle, David and Aaron this week.
First, Tig, I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine the shock and sadness you have gone through and will continue to deal with. To have that on top of your illness is really almost more than one could bear. I am sending you all my love and best wishes as you recover. You are a remarkably strong person to have dealt with that all mostly on your own. I could never have done that.
To Kyle, David and Aaron, thank you for being there for Tig. She is lucky to have such wonderful, supportive friends. Kyle, you must be an unbelievably supportive person to have been there on the phone with TIg when her mom passed. Your story about your father was terribly sad. I choked back tears several times as I listened.
Loss and grieving and mourning are things that we must all go through, but are seldom spoken about. I am sure that this episode will be a comfort to the listeners now and in the future.
Well, I think I’ll put on my calba-hat, wrangle my baby teeth and get a ruth canal. Mostively, that is what I wanted to say.
Long distance hugs to all in the hatch. Well, that's been comment.
