I have a friend/co-worker (who is dating another friend/former co-worker) named Adelaide. She was in a terrible car-on-bike accident over the weekend. She’s alive, and it doesn’t sound like she’s lost vision or had any neurological damage, but her face took the brunt of the trauma, and she’s already had one (two?) surgeries, with plenty more to come.
This is my friend Kennett’s story. He is the boyfriend (soon-to-be-fiance, eh?) of Adelaide. It is quite difficult to read, especially the closer you are to him and to Adelaide, but it’s a gripping, touching, incredibly heartfelt and well-written account, ultimately of love in the face of an impossibly difficult and tragic day.
Adelaide, Kennett, and all the Perr family are in my thoughts.
