The people and places are familiar but it is so much easier to assimilate the information now that Rachael is not an active part of it. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. It’s not an easy task you’ve chosen to be a part of – but so important. Rachael and Ros are very different individuals and they came to terms with the dynamics of living with another person 24/7. Ros came to visit Rachael over the summer and she is now one of my families (and Rachael’s) favorite people. This will happen for you, too. Be well. Love to Bino. Marti

This must be a difficult, though necessary, turning point in your personal perspective and personal growth. Thank you for sharing your progress in this fine endeavor.
