I hurt someone who I consider to be a friend with a recent blog post. Grief is a sucky thing to go through, and I made the arrogant error of analyzing an expression of grief. My words of analyzing grief when heard in the midst of fresh pain caused more hurt, and I deeply regret that. Since the forum of the wound was this blog, I must in good conscience apologize here as well as personally. I didn’t consider the effects that words reflecting my grief would have on others before hitting “Publish”. So, to the Huber Family and the West Hill Friends Community I apologize and am deeply saddened that my words caused you pain. I have removed the offending post.
Update scheduleHi Friends, This blog will be updating on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays depending on my daughter's health issues. Thank you for reading! Gil
