Last night was the panel discussion about Nick Rudd and his influence here in C-U. It was wonderful to see the faces of those on the panel and the names of those that were there listening. It was emotional and I sniffed through it, wiping my eyes constantly. Seeing others tear up and Steve Scariano lowering his head in grief was gutting but also healing in a sense. Seeing the depth of love for Nick from others was comforting.

I will always miss him.

I have no other words today. I must admit to feeling utterly exhausted. Last night was wonderful but draining.
