Thank you, Matt's mom. Because of you, two young women were saved from danger. Because of you, a man who desperately needed to get to a hospital got there. Because of you, thousands of people who would never have known each other have comforted one another, informed one another, helped one another, laughed with one another, cheered with one another. Hundreds of people who would have never met one another have gotten together, in big cities and in small towns, all over the planet. They've shared meals and parties and celebrations, they've slept on one another's couches and floors, and a few of them have even gotten married.

Thank you, Matt's mom.

I'm a parent.

When my time draws near and I am taking stock of all that I was - when I was at my best, and at my worst - I will consider my life a success if I see my child walking forward in the world being a kind and generous person, contributing goodness. It's hard being a parent. Sometimes, that makes it hard being a son.

In this time of transition and grief, may you find strength and comfort and peace in knowing that you are a son (and now a parent and husband) she can truly be proud of.

Sincere condolences to you and yours Matt.

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that, we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me.
Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you.
For an interval.
Somewhere.
Very near.
Just around the corner.
All is well.

Henry Scott Holland
