    Be as strong as you can, Robert. Besides your kids, there's a lot of us around the globe that think the world of you.

    You need anything in the coming days, please ask. It'd be a privilege.

    I mean, no offense, but I don't really see why, like guitar players from Creed, or something like that, are on the cover of guitar magazines. Almost anybody can sit down and learn to play those songs.

    I'm sorry to hear that, Robert. I had wondered but I figured no news was good news. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

    I guess any advice about how to move forward from here, considering I have a 16-year-old daughter. One thing I am doing is getting us a dog. I also invite people over more frequently so that we have some company on a regular basis. I also give her ideas about things we can do together and I also give her all the space she needs. Yesterday, I gave her a Lego set, expert level, and she really enjoys it.

    Such a tough age for a young woman to lose her mom. I hope that you will be brought closer together by helping each other through. Your instincts sound good - make sure that you take steps to take care of yourself, too, though.

    Sounds like you are doing all the right things. I think it's especially good to have more people over because quiet times can be rough. The good thing is that kids are pretty resilient. They cope surprisingly well.
