Hi Mr Van der Leun,
You don’t know me, but you knew my wife, Jewel. Recently my daughter, Julia, texted me a link that you posted to a collection of her posts, which also contained a number of comments. These comments were from people I have never met, from places I have never been, from people I didn’t know existed, yet they have deeply touched my heart and soul.
I just wanted to thank you and thank them for their kind words. It really meant a lot to me. If there is a way to pass this along to those involved, it would be greatly appreciated.
I plan to read the comments aloud at Jewel’s grave, in the hopes that somehow she can hear them.
Jewel and I were married 38 years yet I never knew the many that she had touched.
Thank you again,
