Reading Time: 2 minutes So, if I was to write a letter to you – to all the peopleout there who feel burdened with grief, who feel less than, who are struggling to stay afloat and navigate the harsh waters of their reality, I would start with Dear Loved One.

Reading Time: 3 minutes There are very few positive holiday memories that I have. I outlined a few not so positive ones here, and I glossed over Thanksgiving.
