My thoughts are absolutely with the family during this time, but I want to be sure you know my thoughts are with all of you too.

Whether we have met him or not, it felt like he was someone we knew, even in a small way, and it is natural to feel that loss.
Please take care of yourself. In whatever way is best for you. It’s okay to feel the way you do and you know best what you need. Look after yourself. You’re important and need care as well.

Hopefully when they most need it they can feel our support that way too.
