From my daughter, Morgan (Caroline) Bren’s disappearance in early April through the subsequent discovery of her body in late May, and finally her memorial service at the Curtis House in September, I’ve been blessed with support and acts of kindness from so many good people, many of whom I do not even know within this and other nearby communities in such a myriad of ways, I cannot begin to name or enumerate them all.

I must try, however, to name some: the Colrain and Ashfield police chiefs’ volunteer search and rescue crews; volunteer search parties of friends, neighbors and strangers; state police search crews; those who made and posted countless posters and notices in multiple towns in various states; countless condolence cards and kind words from both known and unknown writers; groceries and meals left at my door when I could not cook or shop; and much, much more. And all during a time of our own personal separations, anxieties, confusion, fears and losses.

To acknowledge and thank those who donated their time to help provide, plan and actualize a remembrance service at the Curtis House that welcomed over 20 of my daughter’s friends and colleagues in the comic art community, many of whom did not know one another but were able to camp for the weekend on my neighbor’s land. To all those who contributed food, delivered needful things and helped clean up after the weekend. To church and community members who just showed up when needed and brought whatever was needed. Thank you, thank you all.

In gratitude and love.
