The hardest story I've ever written, especially as a new dad and someone on the finish line that day.

    So So sad

    I saw that no one commented on this article and decided to read it. It's such a sad story and I've been avoiding reading about the Richard family. It's just too horrible to think about the grief that this family has to endure. My deepest sympathies go out to them and I hope more people feel the same. I hope they find peace.

    I was actually crying as I was reading the story. I can't imagine the pain this family has experienced and I marvel at the amount of love with which their family and friends have surrounded them.
