My Reason for Doing Perl
You have my deepest condolences on your loss.
It is hard for many who are not in the community to understand how the technology community can provide a solace to those who are experiencing hardship, but although I cannot begin to understand your grief, I have also found the community to be a place to find a quiet respite during turbulent times in my life and hope that it will continue to be such a place for you.
My heart goes out to you, and I hope that in time, you will find peace.
