Just listened to your wife tell a story on The Moth Radio Hour. She is an incredible story teller who very effectively delivered a powerful message about grieving families and the amazing ability we all share that allows us to cope with these traumatic events in our lives. Police academies across the country would be well served to include her story during their death notification segment of training.
