Early morning fire hits Second Street home By DANIELLE McINTOSH Harbor Light Newspaper

The Harbor Springs Area Fire Department responded to a chimney fire call early Sunday morning, April 22. Firefighters were dispatched to a home on Second Street near Glenn Dr. around 4 a.m.. The fire spread from the chimney to a structure fire, but was contained to the attic space and third floor. The Harbor Springs Police Department, Allied EMS and both the Alanson and Readmond/Friendship Fire Departments assisted on the scene. Assistant Fire chief John Cupps said the crew worked over an hour to control the fire and at least an additional three hours for overhaul and clean-up. Cupps told the Harbor Light Newspaper the homeowner had been working on completion of his vacation home the past few years, and was staying at the home to work -CONTINUED on page 6.

City construction on pace so far By KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper

Crews working to complete the downtown Harbor Springs street projects are working late and on weekends to stay on target for an early June completion. With no major “surprises” and plenty of pre-planning, progress reports are all coming in positive, said city manager Tom Richards. “I have not heard of any delays,

Bear spotted emmet county in town The Harbor Springs Police Department is advising local residents to keep an eye on bird feeders and other tasty treats that may attract bears. Harbor Springs Police officer Matt Pater reported spotting a bear wandering downtown Harbor Springs in the Bay Street, Main Street and Judd Street areas early in the morning hours Monday, April 23. Police chief Dan Branson said Pater captured the bear on his video camera. Branson advised residents to just keep an eye out. “It seems every four or five years a bear will wander into town. I remember last time some bird feeders were taken down in the Glenn Drive area.”

and so far, all our contractors are still planning to meet their scheduled completion dates,” he said, noting no news is definitely good news. Aside from construction vehicles hitting poorly marked gas lines on both Main Street and Bluff Street last week, crews have found all the infrastructure to be as expected beneath the roads. “We tried to anticipate everything,” Richards said, adding the City

is having “everything that may need updating under the street-- from sanitary and storm water sewers to potential underground electric” taken care of now, while the street is torn up. “The last thing we’d ever want is to have to tear the street up again in the near future,” he stressed. “We’ve fortunate.

How long have you lived in northern Michigan? What brought you here?

Q & A

Local Leaders

Emmet County Commmissioner

I have lived in northern Michigan since I was four. My parents moved the family up here from downstate for all the quality of life reasons. My Dad commuted back and forth for work. His commitment and sacrifice bred a real appreciation for the area in me, since before I could even tie my shoes.

Paul Hramiec What is your favorite feature of northern Michigan? Almost every day, I look out and see what the Bay looks like. You can tell what the weather is like or going to

be like by the look it gives you. It’s windier than you thought if you see whitecaps, yet some days it looks like glass. The ice flows come in mid-winter and you have to wonder when the whole thing will freeze over. When the ice cover breaks up, it’s one of those Hallmark moments that lets you know we are about to lift the heavy yoke of winter off our shoulders. The range of colors span from gunmetal gray to the most spectacular blue green; it looks like a postcard from the Caribbean. Say what you want about the zebra mussels, they have given us beautiful water quality. It’s hard to pick a favorite feature, but the Bay tops the list. My other favorites include how people wave to each other from their cars when they pass on a quiet road or how you can strike up a conversation with a stranger with no pretension. I also enjoy our small town fourth of July parades, and knowing half the people in them, and value the relative safety of our area to raise children.

The Harbor Springs School District has two important ballot initiatives on the docket for the May 8 election. A renewal of the Building and Site fund will play a vital role in how the district’s ever-shrinking revenue dollars are able to be spent, said superintendent Mark Tompkins. The current Building and Sink millage expires this year. The Board of Education is requesting voters pass a smaller millage for another five years, down from .66 mills to .54 mills. “It is a huge part of our budget, and if we did not have Building and Site Fund dollars, we’d have to look to our general fund. Our general fund is the money we use to pay our teachers and other expenses,” Tompkins said. He stressed having a Building and Site Fund allows the district to maintain its investments in infrastructure and buildings, and will allow for upgrades to facilities as necessary. “We do have some significant projects looming, like a renovation of our locker rooms, which we hope to start this summer if the Building and Site renewal passes. Anyone who has used our locker rooms understands how badly they need to be renovated, and unfortunately, that is -CONTINUED on page 3.

Seven apply for Council appointment Seven people applied to be appointed to the Harbor Springs City Council. The seat was held by Mick Heinz, who died recently, and the appointee will fill the remainder of Heinz’s two year term. Harbor Springs city manager Tom Richards said a committee was meeting to review the applications, and would have a recommendation for a full vote of Council at the next regularly scheduled meeting, Monday, May 7 at 7 p.m. Richards said three of the candidates have “experience” serving on city-related boards and/or commissions. “I was very pleased to see so much interest,” he noted. “It is a great to have people want to be involved.” The Harbor Springs City Council meets in Council Chambers at City Hall. Meeting agendas and previous meeting minutes are available on the City’s website, cityofharborsprings. com.

Detroit Transit is Vital to the Whole State By JIM LIVELY Policy Director Michigan Land Use Institute

Sometimes in rural northern Michigan, Detroit can seem a world away. Their issues don’t affect us: problems in Detroit are their problems, not ours. But economists know that Michigan’s future, including northern Michigan’s, is inextricably connected to the fate of Detroit. When Detroit is doing well, tourism and manufacturing business opportunities around the rest of Michigan increase dramatically.

And, Detroit cannot succeed if Michiganders don’t stop the terrible, twin trends of public disinvestment and population loss from our state’s largest city. Perhaps the most glaring example of disinvestment is the lack of a regional public

Poetry American Life in Poetry BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE

Here’s a fine poem about family love and care by Janet Eigner, who lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. You can feel that blessing touch the crown of your head, can’t you?

Isaac’s Blessing When Isaac, a small, freckled boy approaching seven, visits us for Family Camp, playing pirate with his rubber sword, sometimes he slumps in grief, trudging along, his sacrifice and small violin in hand, his palm over his chest, saying, Mother is here in my heart. Before he leaves for home, we ask if he’d like a Jewish blessing. Our grandson’s handsome face ignites; he chirps a rousing, yes, for a long life. We unfold the prayer shawl, its Hebrew letters silvering the spring light, hold the white tallis above his head, recite the blessing in its ancient language and then the English, adding, for a long life. Isaac complains, the tallis didn’t touch his head, so he didn’t feel the blessing. We lower its silken ceiling to graze his dark hair, repeat the prayer. American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation (www., publisher of Poetry magazine. It is also supported by the Department of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

transportation system that can move people between city and suburbs in the Detroit area. Realtors, developers, and demographers confirm that cities without effective transit systems are not attractive to young workers who are driving the new economy. So it is encouraging to note that right now the Michigan Legislature is considering several bills that would allow southeast Michigan to create a regional transit authority. Without such an authority, which shares funding between suburbs and the city, southeast Michigan will never receive the necessary federal transportation investments to build a world-class public transportation system. The history of regional transit in Detroit—or the lack of it—began in the 1970s, when Governor Milliken made the first unsuccessful attempt to bridge the divide between Detroit and the surrounding suburbs. There have been nearly two-dozen failed attempts since. But we are again seeing northern Michigan leadership to finally resolve this critical issue. State Senator Tom Casperson from Escanaba introduced the bills to create a regional transit authority and Traverse City state Representative Wayne Schmidt is an outspoken supporter of public transit statewide, including in Detroit. These leaders know that Michigan can no longer afford to send our college graduates away to cities such as Portland, Seattle, and Chicago, which offer more housing choices, social and recreation opportunities—and public transportation. We need to reestablish Detroit as a worldclass city worthy of attracting new economy workers from around the globe. Effective public transportation is a critical element. Governor Snyder’s administration has proposed a regional system of rapid buses that function similar to lightrail—with dedicated lanes, stations and platforms, and the ability to quickly and relatively inexpensively initiate a world-class transit system. -CONTINUED on page 3.

But the Legislature first must create this new authority. The legislation would allow the southeast Michigan -CONTINUED on page 3.

Detroit transit... -CONTINUED

region to fund and administer a regional transit system that would coordinate three systems now managed by three independent services: DDOT (Detroit’s transit agency), SMART (a three-county suburban transit agency), and the independent People Mover authority. If this regional authority succeeds in southeast Michigan, it would make it more likely that similar agencies could be created for other regions of the state, including ours. And that will

make Michigan even more attractive to entrepreneurial knowledge workers. These bills are moving through the Senate and on to the House soon. Please contact Senator Walker and Representative Foster soon and encourage their support of these three Regional Transit Authority bills for southeast Michigan – because they will benefit all of us.

not an inexpensive task.” Tompkins said the School Board’s first priority is always teaching and learning, which is why the Building and Site Fund is such an important vote. “Our resources go to people,” he said. “We’re being diligent, and lowered the millage rate because it better fits what we anticipate needing in the next five years, so even in passing this millage, people will still see a reduction in their taxes.” The other critical question on the ballot is the annual renewal of the non-homestead operating millage. Although the millage itself is not new-it must be passed each year in order to fund the Harbor Springs School District-- the length of its approval is moving from one year to three years. “With changes in the state law that say School Board elections will no longer take place in May, we will not have to have an annual May election. This is a good thing, because elections cost us money. By approving the non-homestead millage for multiple years, we avoid incurring the costs of an additional election,” Tompkins said. The non-homestead millage is a tax placed on only on second homes, as well as industrial and commercial

properties in the Harbor Springs School District. “This millage supports 90-percent of the budget for the district,” Tompkins stressed, adding, “This is not a tax for homeowners in Harbor Springs.” The Harbor Springs Board

plished all at once.” Richards said he happy to hear onlookers commenting about the crews being “so busy and working so hard” and he’s “crossing fingers” to see the work completed not only on time, but perhaps even ahead of schedule.

-CONTINUED from page 1.

How did you come to serve on the Board of Commissioners? What interests you about the work of the commission? Tom Shier wasn’t running for re-election and this office was an interest of mine. My Dad was a Macomb County Commissioner in the late 60s early 70s and made a real difference in his work, so I was naturally inclined. But the real trigger stemmed from a few issues... A porn shop opened up right on the southern gateway to Emmet County and another fellow was about to put a massive wind turbine on Howard Road in town, visible for 30 miles. It makes no difference to me how a person makes their living, but to do so at the cost of the livelihood of the neighbors and community is unacceptable. I was concerned about the long-term planning of what we wanted this county to look like in 20-30 years. I felt that the planning and zoning was not proactive but more a reaction, and when you react in planning, it’s always too late.

Lyn Johnson, Emmet County Controller, put together a committee that brought all

the department heads together and the budget committee to figure out how to run the county on decreasing tax revenues for the foreseeable future, yet at the same time, fund long term capital projects. This was a very difficult task. We collectively, over a series of many meetings, came up with some great ideas and resolutions. Thus, our county will remain on path as one of the few fiscally solvent in the State.

What projects or goals are you currently looking forward to on the Board of Commissioners? We need to figure out what the best possible model and funding solution for ambulance service in the county. It’s complicated and all the options need to be thought out, but it needs to be resolved definitively. We are wading through many different options and just want to make the right cost effective choice. There is no margin for error on this one.

How long have you been serving as an elected official in Emmet County? Not long. But long enough to come to a real appreciation for the county workers who do a very good job in their occupations. The ones that I know are extremely qualified, have private sector experience,

could make more money if they went back to the private sector, and are so good at their jobs. We should be concerned about how to replace their capabilities upon their eventual retirement. That is not an overstatement. These people are top-notch. You don’t really hear much about the county government, no one comes to the monthly board meetings, and the reason is because you’ve got these qualified experts running the show. So quiet is good.

What big plans/vision do you have for Emmet County? The County owns 1,000 acres surrounding Pellston Airport. One thousand acres! We have put a ton of money into creating facilities that rival the best airports in the country. It is time we leverage all this while they are new and pristine. The land is already zoned commercial/industrial. We should be doing everything possible to attract industry to build their operations on that property. It could be a small silicon valley. This is a very doable plan. The next time the Governor goes on a trade junket to Japan, Shanghai, or Timbuktu, I want someone from Emmet County there with him to tell our story. It’s time to take the show on the road.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then



Harbor Light Community Newsweekly

See you in May!!! 262 E. Main Street 526-4050

Did you ever stop and think about how many words or phrases that we use that no longer really apply as we are using them? For example, how often do you use the expression “roll down the window?” Now think about the last time that you actually rolled down a window. I think the last car that I had without power windows was a mideighties Ford EXP. Somehow, put the window down just doesn’t flow as easily off the lips; I’m not even sure what the proper verb would be, maybe power the window down? I know that I frequently say that I have taped a television program, even though there is no tape involved in the process; somehow saying I DVR’d it just doesn’t sound right. I still refer to buying an album, though vinyl has been gone for a long time. In fact, unless you are a dinosaur like I am, you probably don’t even buy a CD. I’m not comfortable with the concept of downloading music. I completely understand and appreciate all the benefits, but I like to have something in my hand

to show for it when I spend my money. Reading a book is also going by the wayside. Webster describes a book as a collection of sheets of paper, or similar material, blank, written, or printed, bound together; commonly, many folded and bound sheets containing continuous printing or writing. How many of you say that you are reading a book but you are actually looking at a screen with no pages, no binding involved? Another misused verb is dial. Don’t you still refer to dialing a number, even though it’s probably been two decades since you actually did anything but push buttons? And if you send someone something that they have to read, is that actually calling them? Most communication is not always presented as it actually is. I find myself often saying that I “talked” with someone when in fact we emailed or messaged or facebooked. Let me state unequivocally that I do not believe any of those forms of communication measure up to an ac-

tual conversation. How many problems begin because the above mentioned methods of communication cannot express emotion (and no, I don’t think LOL is expressing anything.) Anger, joy, sarcasm; any emotion is much easier to interpret when there are facial expressions and vocal intonations involved. Noah Webster defined shopping as the act of visiting shops for the purchase of goods. Technically speaking, I suppose when our shopping is done on-line we are “visiting” shops but again, don’t you think that loses something in that translation? My husband says I shop by feel and I don’t deny that. I like to feel the fabric, see the true colors, feel the heft of cutlery or smell the fragrance of a perfume. Cyber shopping removes that possibility. I have to chuckle a little when I hear people refer to cooking dinner and there is little actual cooking involved in what they are doing. I know that technically cooking is the practice of preparing food but I question how much preparation is involved with

space and saw smoke. While there was a significant amount of water damage to the home, the fire department was able to contain the blaze quickly, without threatening nearby the wooded area or structures. Cupps noted there were no

fire hydrant issues, despite downtown road construction involving water mains. He praised his fellow firefighters efforts. “All things considered,” Cupps said, “it was a great save.”

be able to go back and read them and remember. We’ve been re-watching PBS’ series about the Civil War at home and much of what happened is related through letters sent from the soldiers to their families. Future generations won’t have that written record to treasure with our electronic forms of communication. Starting off with one belated birthday wish this week that may get me cuffed along side the head, but I hope that Sue Carpenter Moore had a wonderful day on Sunday, April 22 and that Evan Rosinski turned sixteen with all the bells and whistles on the 18th. This week, the happiest of birthdays to Terry Meyer and to Jane Kaup on the 26th; you might catch Jane doing a birthday twist salute to Dick Clark at Teddy Griffin’s on Thursday. On Friday, Happy Birthday to Steve Murchie and to Roxie Beach and on Saturday, April 27, to Ben Veling and Carole Marszalec Greig. The 29th is the birth anniversary day for Jim LaCount and Jeremiah Radke and Tuesday, April 30, will see plenty of celebrating by Mark Brown, John Medicine, Laura Septic and Lisa Talaga LeClaire. Finally, on May 1st, Happy Birthday to Bill Perry. Share your news with Cynthia, 231.56.7842

Obituary Beverly Kosequat



throwing a frozen entrée into the microwave. Is that actually cooking? I enjoy cooking, but I like to think there is more involved than opening a door and pushing some buttons. Going to work no longer requires going anywhere. It doesn’t have to mean getting in your car and driving to an office or a job sight; now it can often mean going into the next room and booting up a computer or picking up a telephone or doing whatever you need to in your home. The recent comments by Bill Maher defining going to work as, “getting your %@# out of the door at 7 a.m. when it’s cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you’re unhappy you can’t show it for eight hours” were archaic before he uttered them. Leaving the full time mother controversy aside, there are many people of both sexes in countless fields “going to work” every day without exiting the house. Finally, off subject just a little but worth mentioning, I think, is the loss of actual letters. An email just isn’t the same. One truly touching story that I heard at Eddie Kelbel’s memorial was from his brother Pete, who told me that Eddie kept all the letters everyone had ever written him, his family and his friends. When Ed passed, the letters were all returned by his family to the senders. What a gift to

Beverly J. Kosequat, (Cosens) 85,died March 29, 2012, in Royal Oak, Michigan. Born July 14,1926, in Big Rapids, Michigan, she married her high school sweetheart, Leonard, and they were together 64 years until his death in 2010. The couple enjoyed more than 20 years of leisure living (and golf!) in Cary, North Carolina. Beverly is survived by three daughters--Judy Kosequat, Royal Oak, Michigan; Karen (Ted) Grodhaus, Duluth, Georgia; and Mary Thornton, Troy, Michigan. The proud grandmother of Jeremiah and Dave Walters, Adam and Teddy Grodhaus, she was preceded in death by her first grandson, Christopher Grodhaus. She also is survived by two sisters-in-law and several nieces and nephews. A graveside memorial service will be held later this summer in Harbor Springs, MI.

Hole in One Dan Seamon of Harbor Springs recorded a hole-inone at the Mackinaw Club Golf Course Sunday April 23. The 170 yard shot was made on hole #4, a par 3 with it’s green elevated on a ridge about 10 feet above the tee. Dan says he likes to think that the hole in one was a result of years of practice and knowing the lie of the green, but probably more then likely the “hole in one” was the result of lots and lots of luck.

Our guys finished only two shots behind Grayling in an extremely tough, cold and windy day that really tested the patience and mental toughness of every player. I have put a strong focus on staying positive throughout the rounds and with the focus and dedication these guys have shown thus far, I am excited for this great group of kids to continue to improve.”

Game 1 Harbor Springs 11, Grayling 3 Andy Morse pitched a complete game for the victory. He allowed only four hits in giving up only one earned run. Mitch Wallin reached base four times and Brendan Bailey was 2 for 2 with two RBI’s. Harbor Springs played error-free ball until the last inning when two errors led to the final Grayling runs. Game 2 Harbor Springs 4, Grayling 4 Mike Gorman and Mitch Wallin combined to hold Grayling to four runs on seven hits. Harbor Springs played error-free baseball in game two. With two outs in the last inning, Andy Morse ripped a double to tie the game, plating Wallin and David Walker who had singled, but he was stranded and the game ended in a tie. Coach’s Comments: Coach Mark Pontoni said, “For our first games of the year, the guys have much to be proud of. Grayling had already played six games and hit the ball well most of the day. We’ve been preaching defense since day one, and

today the guys got to see how good defense leads to great results. Andy’s clutch hit in game two will be a season highlight. Whenever you are up with two outs and the game on the line, character means as much as athletic skill. Morse showed his strong character today. When Wallin struck out three hitters on nine pitches with the bases loaded in the last inning, he showed great character too. We didn’t play perfect, but we showed our potential and if we’re willing to build on today’s effort, we’re in for a great season.”

Community History Note: Back in 1981, the Harbor Light Newspaper collaborated with area history experts, local civic organizations and area businesses to produce a Harbor Springs Centennial Edition of the Harbor Light marking the 100th birthday of Harbor Springs. We are in the process of bringing the articles and features from that issue back to life and plan to re-issue that edition in a new format at some point in the next year. As part of that process, we will be including excerpts and articles from that edition periodically here in these pages, along with other history-related content. We hope you enjoy these looks back in our community’s history. We are also featuring these articles online in new blog:

From the Past...1958 •

School enrollment in the elementary school was up 40 pupils but total high school enrollment dropped from 201 to 188, placing the Harbor Rams into Class D status.

Permission was granted by the city Council for use of the municipal dock for unloading of pulp wood being cut on South Fox Island.

Annual discussion was held on advisability of establishing an alley south of Main Street between Spring and State Streets.

In a report to residents of the school district, Supt. Leonard VanHoven wrote that Harbor Springs has one teacher to every 24 pupils; average teacher’s salary for year will be $4,400.00.

Emmet County has been allocated a quota of one million dollars in the War Bond Drive, the 3rd annual drive which hopes to raise $15 billion from coast to coast.

More than 500 persons attended the annual Camp-Play Day, held last week at the Harbor Point Casino and staged by members of the recreational classes.

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse ZuMbaugh

The Lucky One

Study Riverine Mammals,

Whether you are a fan or not, it is hard to dispute the fact that Nicholas Sparks knows how to spin a tale that will touch hearts. His books are consistently best sellers and this is the fifth one to make the trip to the silver screen. Some of them I have appreciated; some strain my sense of credulity. While I enjoyed this story, there were certainly some “yeah, right” moments but to his credit, his plots always have some interesting twists. Logan (Zac Efron) is an active duty Marine in Iraq, one day in the middle of everything, he sees a photograph lying in the debris and he moves to pick it up. That move saves him from being hit by a near by explosion and he decides that the unknown woman in the photograph is his guardian angel. He carries the photo through three tours of duty and credits her for keeping him safe. Upon his return to the States he is determined to find her even though he has no clue who she is. He and his dog simply take off walking. Since this is a movie, in all of the United States, he happens upon her. Beth (Taylor Schilling) operates a dog kennel (thus one of the reasons I liked the movie) and when he goes to meet her, she thinks he is answering an ad, so he goes to work for her. There is definitely an attraction between Beth and Logan, encouraged mightily by Beth’s grandmother (Blythe Danner.) Zac Efron is improving quite steadily as an actor and he is wonderful to look at, as is Taylor Schilling. I wasn’t overwhelmed by Schilling’s performance and never really convinced of any electricity between them; at times, there is a more interesting relationship with the grandmother, and Danner is wonderful as always. The story is at least original and it has all the proper components: beautiful couple, nasty third party, amazing scenery, cute child and adorable animals. There were times when I thought this walked a very thin line between how romantic that he tracked her down and a Lifetime channel stalker movie. If you are a fan of Nicholas Sparks, there is no question that you will undoubtedly love this movie. I wouldn’t classify myself as such, but I did enjoy this one for what it is. It is a romance with a touch of mystery, it is not great cinema but it is entertaining and they didn’t try to make it into anything more than that. I will say that for a short movie, it seemed to drag some; there is a lot of romantic cinematography. And of course, it has all the dogs; that certainly didn’t lose points with me. Rated PG13, this is quite family friendly. There is some mild profanity and what I suppose could be referred to as sexual situations (by a stretch) but nothing offensive for the audience that Efron’s presence and the Sparks’ romantic storyline will bring to the theater.

Town Happenings Day of Sharing, is May 9. High School students from Harbor Springs would like to offer help cleaning up yards for those 65 and older that live within 30 minutes of the school. Students will rake leaves, remove brush, plant flowers, etc. If interested, call Jennifer LaPoint at (231)526-4806 or email The deadline for calling is May 1.

Books of Note THE BEGINNER’S GOODBYE by Anne Tyler

Those of you who read and are about my age are familiar with the name and the works of Anne Tyler. You may remember Ladder of Years, Saint Maybe, and Breathing Lessons which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1988. While this story is not a waste of time, it doesn’t have the impact of her earlier works. I finished the story without a struggle but didn’t feel as satisfied as I had with some of her other novels. The premise of the story is straightforward - the main character, Aaron Woolcott, works in the family business, a vanity publishing firm. Because of an illness in early childhood, Aaron is left with an impediment - diminished use of his right foot, leg, and right arm. His mother and his sister have fawned over him always and he has come to hate it. He meets Dorothy who cares nothing at all for his “handicap” and he feels free from the boundaries his difference has made. He has found someone who doesn’t need to take care of him. In fact it is he who cares for Dorothy, who is no domestic goddess - she is in fact a radiologist, dedicated to her work. Enter the fates: Aaron and Dorothy have a minor spat over Triscuits, yes, the crackers. Aaron stomps off to the bedroom, Dorothy retreats to the sunporch, and the oak tree in their yard falls on the house crushing Dorothy. She lives for a short time and then Aaron is left to figure out his life, past and present. In his grief or in reality, Dorothy appears to him. These appearances are a comfort to him and he takes great care not to frighten Dorothy away. Tyler touches on all of the trappings of grief: the casseroles that are never eaten, the well-meaning friends, and the concerned looks of family and co-workers. Aaron says “That was one of the worst things about losing your wife I found: your wife is the very person you want to discuss it all with”. Aaron is unable to return to the home he and Dorothy shared and he moves in with his sister. In the course of his grief he learns much about his marriage and he learns about himself and how others see him.
