Your recs have pushed my post #37267 about Loss and Living on Your Terms into the Post of the Day. Paul's influence will be conveyed to a wider audience and more people will probably be visiting us here.

Your comments, your recs and the knowledge that some of you have reinvigorated old friendships has helped convert this painful experience into catharsis. I read a novel once where catharsis occurred for a spiritually prepared character when he swam across a river of molten lava and emerged exhausted on the other bank, physically and emotionally cleansed and with a lifetime of scars and even birth defects sloughed off in the flow. Writing about Paul's life and death was like that for me. You have helped me drag myself onto the other bank and I feel whole and healed now. The pain is there, but the knowledge that you and I have connected and that good has occurred has given me new strength.

I humbley thank you.
