Thank you for Christine Clarridge’s amazing article [“Despair. Pain. Resolve.,” page one, May 1].This tragedy for the Schulte family has been so overwhelming in so many ways. You have given voice to their amazing resilience and deep strength. We cannot help but respond to Dan Schulte’s words with compassion and love. And what a witness to our sense of community — we share their feelings!
