Today is the memorial. I've been quite busy getting ready, and clearly my mind has been busy, too, as I've had a horrible time sleeping this week.
I'm looking forward to this afternoon, but I'm also looking forward to it being over.
I know that many (most) of you who read this blog don't know me in real life and didn't know John, but if you'd like to be a virtual presence at the memorial, here is what you can do. We'll be having a candle-lighting ceremony at 6:30 p.m. EST (or so). Light a candle along with us, if you'd like, and spend a few minutes of quiet reflection.
I'll post about the memorial next week.
