Jen,

Grandmas are always right, and when the time is right and you've come to that place in your heart, or that moment in your day when you feel "okay" again, you'll know that the deepest kind of healing has begun. And, Grandma will smile.

This community and this city embraces you with a love and protectiveness that will be there for you through anything, so please reach out when needed. We won't let you down. And, Teresa's spirit will be right there with all of us, as it will always be with you.

Thank you. Eli said it best, though I know it wasn't a title you ever intended to earn. You are the bravest woman in Seattle, Jennifer Hopper. You will find peace.

Eli, it's clear from your passionate reporting that this tore a chunk right out of your heart, too. Thanks so much for your outstanding, compassionate and intuitive take. Your talents are deeply appreciated.

P.S. Yes, write the book...

Brave, yes - but also dignified in recounting the most horrifying and painful indignity imaginable. Brave, yes - but also fully present in moments of recall that most of us would have long ago blocked, shaded with brighter colors, or just wholly denied. Brave, yes. And, so much more. May this community always embrace and protect you, my friend, and hold Teresa's memory and spirit in the honorable place it deserves.

And, thank you, Eli, for showing such perception and sensitivity in your writing about this terrible, terrible act.
