From 6/13 (yikes! many errors in that one!)

My sister wasn't prepared to hear from her ex-mother-in-law a host of stuff about how he'd always felt terrible about how he'd ruined their relationship and should have accepted her earlier offers of help. In the mother's words, she recognized the version of the man she'd dated and married.

She confessed to me that rather than feel angry about him in death, she now felt sad. Inside the bad guy the cops had killed, she knew the good guy still existed, and for that -- and him -- my sister now mourns.
