It is such a challenge for any of us to understand another's experience of the world. We literally have no access to it, and at best, have to rely on their willingness to let us inside the curtain.

That you and Jeff had so much in common, yet both of you probably had no idea, is a tragic example of this.

But I would like to think that Jeff would appreciate the kind of life you live today. He would be happy that you have managed to battle your demons, and would welcome the kind of compassion and openness you show to your friends.

Nothing can bring back those who are tragically taken from us, but we can live our lives in a way that honors them and their struggle.

Tragic is actually an apt word to use here. It literally is.

I hope he's happy about it at some level. And at some level I believe he is.

It's just so profound to consider that these "little" but "big" truths had been hidden for decades in plain sight.
