My son Neil, is coming for a visit this morning following which he's going to go have lunch at my mom's.

It'll be good to see him

One of my sisters and brothers are coming for coffee too. They also look forward to seeing Neil.

The conversation will be well timed. A stabbing occurred next door to his apartment building yesterday morning and the victim died later that morning. No matter who you are those kind of violent incidents can shake you up a bit.

Twenty - five years ago a tenant in a building I was caretaking jumped to her death from her 8th floor balcony. She landed right beside the front entrance. Although it was my day off, I had to deal with the situation. It's a day that I'll never forget.

I'm glad Neil will have a chance to debrief with us this morning.

  1. I'm so glad your son can talk to you about this traumatic event and that you know from experience what emotions he is going through.
