Since Ray's public coming out, and because I sometimes don't know what to write, I've mentioned to my kids that they might write something for the blog. No one had yet taken me up on that offer, and we certainly don't all have the exact same opinions. I suppose that since Liz has an ongoing blog (over 5 years, but I forget how many exactly), she's got a jump on putting her thoughts online, and she agreed that I could post a link from her blog.
I don't want to give the impression that I'm always "okay," because it's lonely and I grieve the loss of my "happy family." That said, we are still the LOVING family that we always were, and I take comfort in that. Things could have been a lot worse, and we have faced a difficult situation in the best way we could.
Some people don't know what the heck they are talking about when they paint word pictures of the Boltz clan, and Liz takes aim at their misdirected thoughts on her dad. http://lizboltzranfeld.wordpress.com/2010/03/13/your-opinion-man/
Thank you, Liz, for all that you are, and for saying what you think.
