I am stunned by how sad I still am. I wept in the bathroom at my church & was found by 2 friends who wept too.

I didn't know her. She was my first guiding light, and I followed her work for 10 years. Met her several times, but we weren't friends. I feel guilty for grieving so intensely when I know folks like @mike are in mourning for their actual friend.

If anyone out there is struggling today, I'm over here in Alabama, with you.

I'm so grateful for her life and work. 💔

@Melissa @mike

I want to protect the grief journey of her family and friends.

And also... She mattered so much. Pain means it matters. Grief means it matters.

I would not be who I am without RHE. I would not have faith. I would still probably be trying to fit myself into the mold I was "supposed to" fit into as a Christian.

That matters. So I want to give space to those who knew her.

And I want to honor the grief of those who felt that we did.
