  1. Hi Woody,
    This list was inspired by a few situations belonging to several people in my life. I wish that I could come up with the right thing to say to help, but sometimes there just isn’t much that can be said. I was pretty frustrated by that feeling and so I wrote out the list.

    Melissa 🙂
