I wanted to acknowledge and thank the people who've been so wonderfully supportive this past eight-and-a-half months, but there are too many to mention and they probably wouldn't want to be named here anyway.
So I offer this to everyone who wrote, turned up on the doorstep, cooked, cleaned, phoned, organised, listened, laughed, cried, drove, emailed, texted, facebooked or just smiled across the aisle in the supermarket.
From old friends, to close friends to people I'd never met. Family, acquaintances, strangers and those who've become new friends. Thank you for being the candle that has held the absolute dark at bay.
