Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)
Glenn and Joshua,
Thank you both so much for sharing these very personal and difficult experiences.
Glenn, my husband died a few years ago and my heart goes out to you. The beautiful memories of the time you spent with your wife, who must have been such a fine woman, seem very precious. I found your story about those very moving. I think they will help you through the difficult time ahead. And you have your children. I suppose one thing to remember is that each person experiences grief differently, even close family members.
Joshua, I wish you the best for a good recovery. I don't know if this is now an old fashioned belief, but I always feel that men find it harder to talk about such things as grief and illness, than women do, and, for that reason, I was especially touched by your conversation.
