Thanks, everyone, for your kind words, texts, calls, emails. They mean so much to us in this sad time. We’re finding it’s important to laugh and look for bright spots in all this darkness and the following text exchange between R and her father is certainly one. R’s dad warrants a post all his own, but I think this makes a nice preview. I would offer some explanation about why it was reasonable to announce the pregnancy in a text, but I think it’s rather obvious.
