    First I thought it was going to be about an episode of Heroes.

    Then I thought it was going to be a poignant tome about his beloved wife.

    Then I saw the dog.

    EDIT: Just did a JI search, today is the 17th. Very sorry, Stokes.

    I think he is referring to his wife.

    Sorry for your loss Stokes. Can't imagine what that must be like.

    Condolences Stokes. The loss of a spouse has got to be brutal. I can't imagine.

    Thoughts to you and the kids.

    The living carry the memories of the dead. I'd say Stokes has well honored his loved one in this respect.

    Hang in there Stokes.
