This is the hardest news a mother has to hear. My heart hurts for Sue Curnow and her family, but I take some comfort in the notion that someday, there can be closure. There was so much pain in not knowing where Richard was. As bad as this is, it’s better than Richard being dead and no one ever knowing.
Closure won’t happen today. This day, this week, this year, and many times in the future, will be given to grieving. But Richard has left a young daughter who has her whole life in front of her, and I know her family will always be there for her.
Life continues. It just always does.
